Summary :

Provides annotated and judiciously modernized texts of eighteen Restoration plays which offer a representative sampling of many of the different types of play put on in the period (sex comedy, moral comedy, heroic drama, Shakespearean adaptation and political history). At the same time, the even distribution of the plays throughout the period encourages students to reflect on the development of the drama over the full fifty years covered by the anthology. It includes plays by both men and women, as well as dramatic ripostes such as The Rehearsal and The Relapse, which evoke so vividly the adversarial and dialectical world of the theatre in the second half of the seventeenth century.
