Description

This is an extended study of the touring practices and performances of Elizabethan and Jacobean travelling players. It opens with a general introduction to the lively, competitive world of professional touring theatre. The following chapters focus on playing practices and performances in the spaces used as temporary theatres by touring actors (such as town halls and country houses), and the final chapter looks at the decline of this important theatrical tradition in the 1620s.
