Shakespeare:

Playing In oors


Read not dead Performances with scripts of plays by Shakespeare’s contemporaries

The Court Beggar Sunday 4 November By Richard Brome (1640) Originally performed at the Cockpit by Beeston’s Boys, Brome’s funny and perceptive satire pokes fun at court intrigue, theatrical politics, and sexual and financial impropriety. Projectors, dependents, a pickpocket and a madman arrive at the house of the widowed Lady Strangelove, and loves and fortunes are won and lost.

Cynthia’s Revels, or The Fountain of Self-Love Sunday 2 December By Ben Jonson (1600) Cynthia’s Revels was probably the first new play written for the Children of the Chapel, the boys company who performed at the Blackfriars. A satire on court behaviour, fashion and theatre, Jonson’s play showcases the talents of the boy actors, culminating in the performance of elaborate revels for the goddess Cynthia.

RARELY PLAYED These inspiring and engaging introductions to the Read Not Dead performances are delivered by leading specialists in Early Modern Theatre.

The Shakespeare’s Globe Book Award is granted to a first monograph which has made an important contribution to the understanding of Shakespeare, his theatre or contemporaries.

Abigail Rokison Abigail is a scholar and actress wellknown for her role as Primrose Larkin in TV’s The Darling Buds of May amongst many others. After extensive study and academic roles, she now holds the position of Director of Studies in English and Drama at Homerton College, Cambridge.
