The Queen's Men and their Playsby Scott McMillin, Sally-Beth MacLean, McMillin Scott
Pub. Date: 03/31/2006
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This is the first book devoted to the Queen's Men, one of the major acting companies of the age of Shakespeare. The authors break new ground by showing how Elizabethan theatre history can be refocused by concentrating on the company which produced the plays rather than on the authors who wrote them. They provide a full account of the company's acting style, staging methods, touring patterns and repertoire. Their conclusions will interest Elizabethan historians as well as students and scholars of early modern theatre.
