The Shakespearian Playing Companies
Hardcover. 483 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.1in. x 1.3in.This ground-breaking study is the first history of the professional acting companies who brought drama to London in Shakespeares time. Gurr draws on the most up-to-date research to provide a general history of company development from the 1560s, when the first of the major companies belonging to great lords began regularly to offer their plays at court and in London, to 1642, when by Act of Parliament they were closed down. He offers detailed and fascinating accounts of each of the forty companies that played in London during the period, including Shakespeares company, The ChamberlainsKings Men.
