Description


Between 1603 and 1613, The Queen's Revels staged plays by Francis Beaumont, George Chapman, John Fletcher, Ben Jonson, John Marston and Thomas Middleton, all of whom were at their most innovative when writing for this company. Combining theatre history and critical analysis, this study provides a history of the children's company, and an account of their repertory. It demonstrates the involvement in dramatic production of dramatists, shareholders, patrons, audiences and actors alike, and reappraises issues such as management, performance style and audience composition.
