The Cambridge illustrated history of British theatre by Simon Trussler( Book )

20 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and held by 1,503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Combining authoritative writing with superb illustration, The Cambridge Illustrated History of British Theatre is a fascinating exploration of the development of the live performing arts. Taking a broad view of theatre, the book covers everything from the minor and 'illegitimate' to the mainstream and 'official' - whether the mystery plays of the Middle Ages or the 'real time drama' of Coronation Street, the courtly theatre of Shakespeare's day or the 'fringe' of the 1990s." "Theatre is considered throughout as the popular expression of its creators' and audiences' values and concerns. The contributions of players, patrons, playwrights, and audiences are vividly recounted, together with the social and political forces which inevitably influenced them." "Ranging from theatre in the metropolis to theatre in the provinces, the book also examines the influences on theatre from abroad and the impact of British theatre on the cultural scene beyond its own frontiers."--Jacket

The two noble kinsmen by John Fletcher( Book )

10 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the late twentieth century, when scholarly attention began to focus on sexuality, collaboration and Shakespeare's late plays, The Two Noble Kinsmen has become an essential script. Turner and Tatspaugh's edition presents a strong case for taking the play more seriously now than ever before. A lively introduction discusses Shakespeare's craftsmanship in adapting a medieval tale for the Jacobean stage, the extent of co-authorship with John Fletcher, the rhetorical complexity of Shakespeare's late style, the themes of sexuality and friendship, and contemporary critical responses to the play. In addition to presenting a detailed history of performance, the edition calls attention to productions that have demonstrated the play's theatrical vitality and solved - or failed to solve - difficulties inherent in the text. Bringing the textual history completely up to date, the edition reflects renewed interest in The Two Noble Kinsmen, confirming it as a play for today"--
