Book description

Shakespeare's company, the King's Men, played at the Globe, and also in an indoor theatre, the Blackfriars. The year 2014 witnessed the opening of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, based on seventeenth-century designs of an indoor London theatre and built within the precincts of the current Globe on Bankside. This volume, edited by Andrew Gurr and Farah Karim-Cooper, asks what prompted the move to indoor theatres, and considers the effects that more intimate staging, lighting and music had on performance and repertory. It discusses what knowledge is required when attempting to build an archetype of such a theatre, and looks at the effects of the theatre on audience behaviour and reception. Exploring the ways in which indoor theatre shaped the writing of Shakespeare and his contemporaries in the late Jacobean and early Caroline periods, this book will find a substantial readership among scholars of Shakespeare and Jacobean theatre history.


'Definitely a must-read for anyone studying theatre history or working on Jacobean drama.'

Susan Elkin Source: The Stage

'… a comprehensive and nuanced study of the Blackfriars. … this elegant collection of essays sheds new light on how the material conditions of the Blackfriars may have influenced the ways in which plays were performed there …'

The references in this section have been organized in alphabetical order. The archives used by each author are listed first, followed by early books and current scholarly books and articles. With the plays, in some cases both the original text (available through Early English Books Online) and a recent edition are cited. All three of the current Jonson editions are cited, although the Cambridge edition came out too late to be used by our authors. For the earlier English books, no publisher is cited.
