This guide to the unique theatrical venues of London, from 1567, when the first playhouse was built, to 1642, when Cromwell closed them down, sets out the rich dramatic history of this period in relation to the latest exciting archaeological evidence. The book also details the people involved - the builders, actors, playwrights and audiences - what they wore and what they ate, where they drank, where they fought, where they lived and died. There are theatrical quotes and jokes, and illustrations old and new, while a series of walks explores different areas of today's London, where glimpses of Shakespeare's London can still be caught.

Review:

This is an essential and accessible reference book which can be read from cover to cover for pure enjoyment. (John Earl Theatre Magazine, 2012)

This is a beautifully designed book which successfully binds together a gripping and imaginative narrative with rigorous historical analysis and clear presentation of know facts and articles. ...It makes a fascinating read for those already familiar with London’s early modern theatre venues, and those new to the subject. (Eleanor Collins Around the Globe, 2013)

... Bowsher’s book is a comprehensive survey of the current state of knowledge of the Shakespearean theatre ... (Jean Wilson Times Literary Supplement, 2013)

This is a very accessible, and well-illustrated, account of the subject, and should delight anyone with an interest in theatre. (Peter Matthews Friends News, 2012)

A new summary of what we know about the archaeology of Shakespeare’s theatres is both due and welcome, and Julian Bowsher, director of the Rose dig in 1989 and joint author of the final excavation report twenty years later, is the person best qualified to write it. (Norman Hammond The Times)
