Collapse All Sections

A Cultural History of Theatre in the Early Modern Age provides a comprehensive and interdisciplinary overview of the cultural history of theatre from 1400 and 1650. Drawing together contributions from leading scholars, the volume examines socio-economically heterodox nature of theatre and performance during this period. Each chapter takes a different theme as its focus, including institutional frameworks; social functions; sexuality and gender; the environment of theatre; circulation; interpretations; communities of production; repertoire and genres; technologies of performance, and knowledge transmission.
