Article excerpt

This issue of Early Theatre has a broad range of articles covering drama and cultural history from medieval to Caroline theatre. In the medieval frame, Clifford Davidson writes about guild support for the York cycle, Joanne Findon explores a trope in the Digby Mary Mary Magdalene play, and Michelle M. Butler considers choric elements in the Chester cycle. David Nicol's exploration of the Jacobean theatre history and repertory of Prince Charles's (I) Men brings new information to light especially regarding the work of William Rowley. Andrew Griffin's note on Ram Alley looks at female spectatorship traced in this bawdy play, about which relatively little has been written.

Our Issues in Review segment on the Red Bull theatre, repertory, and neighbourhood is an especially pertinent review of research in the field of particular theatrical company and repertory history (see David Nicol's article for another example). Lucy Munro introduces the topics of stage and repertory in Clerkenwell, followed by Anne Lancashire's discussion of the place of Clerkenwell in London theatre history. John Astington deals with the Red Bull in relation to the Fortune, and Marta Straznicky addresses the print history of plays performed at the Red Bull.

We remind readers of this journal not only that Early Theatre is now available online with your subscription, but also that the REED Newlstter will be fully available online as well, access included in your subscription. …
