Abstract

Recent research on patronage, performance and playing spaces in early modern England allows us to reconfigure our understanding of its drama: not only that of the commercial metropolitan theatres, but performances at court, in the universities, in the provinces, and in great houses. This article explores how play-texts were informed by their intended playing spaces and highlights the wealth of texts, particularly by women, available outside the early modern commercial arena.
