Overview

In the ten essays of this collection, the world's most noted authorities on Shakespearean playhouses examine the implications of the remarkable discoveries of 1989. From the excavation of Rose and Globe theatre sites in London to the new explorations of Spain's provincial playhouses, the first new body of evidence to come to light in over one hundred years is revitalizing thought on the theatre of Shakespeare's day. Stage historians Franklin J. Hildy, C. Walter Hodges, John Orrell, and Andrew Gurr join Spanish theatre expert John J. Allen and archaeologists Julian Bowsher and Simon Blatherwick in analyzing the new findings, while Alan Dessen, Hugh Richmond, and J.L. Styan explore how these findings may affect our understanding of performance.
