(From the publisher):
Thomas Middleton is now widely regarded as one of the great playwrights of Shakespeare's time. Michaelmas Term is one of five satiric city comedies he wrote as a young playwright for the boy players of St Paul's Cathedral, sometime before 1607.
With its witty, bawdy dialogue and complex gulling action, the play offers an unusually cynical assessment of the social and familial displacements, and the alienation and loss of cultural memory so characteristic of life in the great metropolis of early modern London.
