Overview

The Stage and Social Struggle in Early Modern England examines the conflict over the stage in Renaissance England and over what was perceived as the proliferation of dangerous theatrical practices. Dynamically exploring the ways in which virulent attacks on theatre made available a language through which social practices were criminalized and condemned, Howard challenges the new historicist view that the theatre primarily served monarchistic and aristocratic class interests. Drawing upon materialist and feminist theory, Jean Howard provides a rigorous reading of the ideological function of anti-theatrical discourse as well as the cultural function of the stage.
