Promotional Information

The first book devoted to the Queen's Men, one of the major acting companies of the age of Shakespeare.


'... they present a revised view of the importance of provincial tours in the life of a company of players, and suggest a degree of state control and use for political purposes of the actors greater than has previously been accepted.' History Today
"Part theater history, part dramatic criticism, this is an exemplary work of careful and detailed scholarship; McMillin (Cornell) and MacLean (Univ of Toronto) provide ingenious and stimulating interpretations of the many political, cultural, and socioeconomic factors that influenced the formation and subsequent history of one of the age's premiere companies. They also offer an intriguing, insightful look at late-16th-century Elizabethan theater practice, including the casting and doubling of roles, how playbooks were managed, how the company organized its extensive touring schedule, dramaturgical issues, and matters of performance style."
