Theatre and Entertainment by Kathy Elgin
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This excellent series provides a fascinating look at Tudor history through the plays and poetry of William Shakespeare. People in Shakespeare's time loved to be entertained, and the newest and most fashionable entertainment was the theatre. This book goes behind the scenes of Shakespearean theatre, examining the working lives of playwrights and actors and showing how plays were staged in theatres like the Globe. Other Elizabethan entertainments are also described, including music and dancing, sports and outdoor pursuits, and the cruel spectacle of bear-baiting.
