Thursday, 23rd June:

RSC Performance- Richard III: 7pm BST: IN PERSON

Reading Early Plays presents: The Knight of the Burning Pestle: 8pm BST: ONLINE

Reading Early Plays (REP) is a group that meets regularly online to explore drama written before the closure of the London theatres in 1642. We are interested in tracing the connections within groups of plays that share particular features, and in following those associations as they develop across time. We might, for example, investigate drama that was performed by the same acting company, that was written by the same dramatist, or that shared some other type of theatrical commonality: we are currently reading through the extant repertories of the Children of Paul's and the Children of the Chapel Royal/Queen's Revels. This week's offering is Beaumont's 'The Knight of the Burning Pestle', which was performed at the Blackfriars playhouse in1607 by the Children of the Queen's Revels, and is a hilarious play with much to say about young actors, the drama of the period, and the actor-audience relationship.

If you are interested in reading a role, please email by midnight (BST) on Sunday 19 June.

For those interested in attending without reading a role, the zoom link will be provided in the conference programme emailed to all conference ticket-holders.
