« Marlowe, Lyly and Children’s Performance in Late Elizabethan London »
This paper offers a reappraisal of the children’s playing companies of late Elizabethan London. It offers new evidence for their management, their relationships with the choirs of the Chapel Royal and St Paul’s Cathedral, and how they acquired and maintained their actors, exploring the implications of this material for how we understand the performance and publication history of plays such as John Lyly’s Galatea and Christopher Marlowe’s Dido, Queen of Carthage
