Mastering the Revels: The Regulation and Censorship of English Renaissance Drama by Richard Dutton

Mastering the Revels offers a detailed reconsideration of the regulation of English Renaissance drama. It is the first study to approach the issue through the role of the Masters of the Revels, who censored most late Tudor and early Stuart plays, relating the control they exercised over the actors to the political context of the court office they themselves held.
