Providing an account of how Restoration plays were written, performed, printed, adapted and revived for modern audiences, this accessible and engaging book is of great interest to undergraduate and non-specialist readers of theatre studies, Restoration drama and English literature. Advance praise: ‘In addition to discussions of a generous selection of plays, Roberts provides students with succinct, informative, and well-paced accounts of the personnel and material circumstances of Restoration theatre, including the actors, the managers, the theatres, and the growth of print culture.

A Jacobean Company and its Playhouse The Queen’s Servants at the Red Bull Theatre (c.1605–1619) Eva Griffith

This unique and colourful history tells the story of Thomas Heywood’s playing company, the Queen’s Servants, and their playhouse, The Red Bull. Eva Griffith makes use of extensive research to set the playhouse in the context of Jacobean London, offering new insights into the development of drama during Shakespeare’s age. ‘The last book about The Red Bull’s plays and their staging came out more than eighty years ago. At the time, it offered a wholly fresh approach to Shakespearean playing. Written by George F. Reynolds, and working from a well-documented body of evidence, freshly assessed, it became the first in a long series of studies of specific acting companies and their repertoire of plays, all attempting to identify how the plays were meant to be staged at their original venues. Eva Griffith has written an admirable replacement for Reynolds’s great work, adding masses of fresh information about the families and their interests behind the company and their playhouse, as well as clarifying many features of the company’s remarkable repertoire. Her book will rightly take its place among the works that have clarified and helped to explain the activities of that uniquely fertile period in English theatre.’ Andrew Gurr, University of Reading 2013 228 x 152 mm 302pp 14 b/w illus.   978-1-107-04188-2 Hardback £60.00 For all formats available, see

All these concerns point to a very different kind

Shakespeare Shakespeare Performance Studies W. B. Worthen Barnard College, Columbia University

Considering three well-known recent performances of Shakespeare at length, Worthen suggests how they provide a commentary on important areas of concern in the humanities, and what Shakespeare performance tells us about contemporary Shakespeare. This book is of interest to scholars and advanced

students of Shakespeare, and of performance studies. Advance praise: ‘In a dazzling survey of cuttingedge contemporary Shakespeare performances, W. B. Worthen calls for a full embrace of the often provocative ‘noise’ of modern Shakespearean performance, and does so with great erudition, analytical incisiveness, and sheer delight.’ Douglas Lanier, University of New Hampshire 2014 228 x 152 mm 280pp 7 b/w illus.   978-1-107-05595-7 Hardback £60.00 Publication July 2014 For all formats available, see

Tales from Shakespeare Creative Collisions Graham Holderness University of Hertfordshire

Tales from Shakespeare takes an innovative and engaging look at Shakespeare through a fusion of creative and critical writing. Using four specific examples, Holderness explores the ‘collisions’ between Shakespeare and contemporary concerns. This book is of vital interest to students, scholars and enthusiasts of Shakespeare, literary criticism and creative writing. Advance praise: ‘Graham Holderness, who was given Lamb’s Tales from Shakespeare as a child, here returns the compliment by writing tales for grown ups – and again shows that he is one of the few academics who can combine scholarship with creativity, criticism with fantasy, historical awareness with commitment to present-day issues. Anyone who thought that there was nothing further to say


Shakespeare about the authenticity of the account of shipboard performances of two Shakespeare plays off the coast of Sierra Leone in 1607, or the likelihood of Shakespeare and Ben Jonson collaborating on the King James Bible, will be surprised at what Holderness does with the two controversies.’ Lois Potter, University of Delaware 2014 216 x 140 mm 240pp 978-1-107-07129-2 Hardback £25.00 Publication June 2014 For all formats available, see

Women and Shakespeare in the Eighteenth Century Fiona Ritchie McGill University, Montréal

Interdisciplinary and employing a broad range of sources, this book establishes, for the first time, the significant role played by women – in particular actresses, female playgoers and women critics – in the establishment of Shakespeare’s burgeoning reputation in the eighteenth century. Advance praise: ‘This compelling and original book enriches and complicates the history of Shakespeare’s reputation. Fiona Ritchie expands traditional notions of literary criticism beyond the printed page to include play-going, patronage and performance, at the same time introducing new evidence of the range and depth of women’s cultural work in the eighteenth century.’

Shakespeare’s Possible Worlds Simon Palfrey University of Oxford

Simon Palfrey offers a new way of understanding Shakespeare’s playworlds. Going right to the heart of early modern popular drama, both how it works and why it matters, this book’s piercing close readings discover the multiplying life in Shakespeare’s language, scenes, and characters as never before. Advance praise: ‘Shakespeare’s Possible Worlds establishes Simon Palfrey as one of the great Shakespeare scholars of our age. On every page, Palfrey marshals his command of Renaissance theatrical technique and Baroque philosophy in order to float inventive readings that demonstrate the plenitude and plasticity of Shakespeare’s dramatic imagining. Crafting both a philosophy of close reading and a dramaturgy of metaphor, Palfrey discovers a hermeneutics indigenous to theater. As Palfrey summons us to witness Shakespeare knitting shapes from the deep, we rediscover ourselves in the concatenation of worlds that drama assembles.’ Julia Reinhard Lupton, University of California, Irvine, and author of Thinking with Shakespeare: Essays on Politics and Life 2014 228 x 152 mm 416pp 978-1-107-05827-9 Hardback £65.00 Publication May 2014 For all formats available, see

Constructing the Canon of Early Modern Drama

Richard Preiss

Jeremy Lopez

University of Utah

University of Toronto

Richard Preiss presents a lively and provocative study of how the early modern stage clown defined – and changed – theatrical experience. Recovering the interactive entertainments with which comedians including Richard Tarlton, Will Kemp and Robert Armin engaged audiences, he draws new conclusions about how early modern theatre negotiated its own textuality.

Constructing the Canon of Early Modern Drama provides the first-ever history of the canon of Renaissance drama as it has evolved since the eighteenth century. Containing dozens of short, provocative readings of unfamiliar plays, this book will benefit professors and postgraduate researchers who seek a broader sense of the period’s dazzling array of forms.

Prescott provides new interpretive methods and case studies of great interest to students of Shakespeare, theatre and media studies. ‘Reviews of theatre performances are often regarded as transitory and of little weight.

Passionate Playgoing in Early Modern England

Modern British Drama on Screen

Allison P. Hobgood

Edited by R. Barton Palmer Clemson University, South Carolina

Willamette University, Oregon

and William Robert Bray

How were early modern playgoers emotionally moved by theatre performances, and how did their reactions in turn influence the stage? Through detailed case studies of canonical plays by Shakespeare, Jonson and others, Allison P. Hobgood tells a new story of emotional encounters between playgoers and the Renaissance stage.

This is the first comprehensive treatment of British and American films adapted from modern British plays. The volume focuses on key playwrights of the period, including George Bernard Shaw, Somerset Maugham, Terence Rattigan, Noel Coward and John Osborne and key plays from Pygmalion to The Madness of George III.

Paratexts in English Printed Drama to 1642 Edited by Thomas L. Berger St Lawrence University, New York

The paratexts in early modern English playbooks – the materials to be found primarily in their preliminary pages and end matter – provide a rich source of information for scholars interested in Shakespeare, Renaissance drama and the history of the book. In addition, these materials offer valuable insights into the rise of dramatic authorship in print, early modern attitudes towards theatre, notorious literary wrangles and the production of drama both on the stage and in the printing house. This unique two-volume reference is the first to include all paratextual materials in early modern English playbooks, from the emergence of print drama to the closure of the theatres in 1642. The texts have been transcribed from their original versions and presented in old-spelling. With an introduction, user’s guide, multiple indices and a finding list, the editors provide a comprehensive overview of seminal texts which have never before been fully transcribed, annotated and cross-referenced. 2014 246 x 189 mm 1024pp 3 b/w illus.   978-0-521-85184-8 2 Volume Set £150.00 Publication May 2014 For all formats available, see
