(From the publisher):
Epicoene is now one of the most widely studied of Johnson's plays. Brilliantly exploiting the Jacobean convention whereby boys played female roles, it satirises the newly fashionable, and sexually ambiguous world of the West End of London, where courtly wit rubs shoulders with commercial values.
