The Oxford Handbook of Tudor Drama provides an authoritative secondary text on Tudor drama. It both integrates recent important research across different disciplines and periods and sets a new agenda for the future study of Tudor drama, questioning a number of the central assumptions of previous studies. Balancing the interests and concerns of scholars in theatre history, drama, and literary studies, its scope reflects the broad reach of Tudor drama as a subject, inviting readers to see the Tudor century as a whole, rather than made up of artificial and misleading divisions between ‘medieval’ and ‘renaissance’, religious and secular, pre- and post-Shakespeare. The articles attend to the contexts, intellectual, theatrical, and historical within which drama was written, produced, and staged in this period, and ask us to consider afresh this most vital and complex of periods in theatre history. The book is divided into four sections which cover religious drama; interludes and comedies, entertainments, masques, and royal entries; and histories and political dramas.

Keywords: Tudor drama; theatre history; drama; literary studies; religious drama; interludes; comedies; masques; political drama; histories
