Product description


Provides rich insights into the mystery plays in York and their modern revival. ― ENGLISH

A fascinating book[...]for historians, or indeed anyone, wanting to get under the skin of the York Plays, this volume provides not only an ideal introduction but a springboard for further thought and research, both practical and academic. ― HISTORY

Furnishes valuable material for scholars, for modern producers and for spectators, whether in making the plays comprehensible for today, or in restating their original message of devotion as well as entertainment. ― NORTHERN HISTORY

This collection is well conceived, well edited, and generously illustrated. It is kind to its reader in having footnotes on the page, a good bibliography, index, and a glossary of Middle English words. It contains excellent academic papers and thoughtful, instructive reports from practitioners. It does all it set out to do and more. ― STUDIES IN THE AGE OF CHAUCER

The volume is beautifully produced, with twenty-four black and white photographs and two line illustrations, a bibliography and index. The entire collection is stimulating and provocative. For students new to the early drama and to theatre history I recommend especially Rogerson's introduction and Tyler's chapter on The Flood's medieval contexts and guild responsibilities for its performance. ― ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW

Many of the contributions prove that exchanges between the academic and theatrical community can be extremely fruitful and that questions about medieval performance, reception and interpretation can be explored through theatrical experiment and participation as well as through traditional academic research. ― MARGINALIA

About the Author

Professor Margaret Rogerson teaches in the Department of English at the University of Sydney.
