Renaissance Drama is dedicated to the investigation of traditional canons of drama and the exploration of the significance of performance in early modern cultures. Each issue presents essays that question or apply newer forms of interpretation to the study of early modern plays, theater, and performance. Articles also address works written in traditions other than the English, the discourses that shaped and were shaped by varied institutions of drama across Europe and beyond, and manifestations of performance and performativity both on and off the theatrical stage.
