About the Authors
  • For almost forty years The Shakespearean Stage has been considered the liveliest, most reliable and most entertaining overview of Shakespearean theatre in its own time. It is the only authoritative book that describes all the main features of the original staging of Shakespearean drama in one volume: the acting companies and their practices, the playhouses, the staging and the audiences. Thoroughly revised and updated, this fourth edition contains fresh materials about how specific plays by Shakespeare were first staged, and provides new information about the companies that staged them and their playhouses. The book incorporates everything that has been discovered in recent years about the early modern stage, including the archaeology of the Rose and the Globe. Also included is an invaluable appendix, listing all the plays known to have been performed at particular playhouses and by specific companies.

    • Updated and thoroughly revised fourth edition ensures the continuing reputation of this book as the definitive guide to the original staging of Shakespearean drama
    • Packed with quotations and illustrations, the book provides undergraduates with all they need to know about staging conditions in Shakespeare's day
    • Contains an invaluable appendix listing all the plays performed at a particular playhouse, the playing company and date of performance
