We are accustomed to focusing on individual playwrights: Renaissance Acting Companies and their Plays makes the case that we also need to think about the companies for which dramatists wrote and with whose members they collaborated, if we wish to better understand the dramas of the English Renaissance stage"-- Provided by publisher.
