In this major contribution to theatre history and cultural studies, authors Lawrence Manley and Sally-Beth MacLean paint a lively portrait of the now-forgotten acting troupe, Lord Strange's Men, a daring company of players that dominated the London stage for a brief period in the late Elizabethan Era. During their short theatrical reign, Lord Strange's Men helped to define the dramaturgy of the era, performing the works of Shakespeare, Christopher Marlowe, Thomas Kyd, and others in a distinctive and spectacular style, exploring innovative new modes of impersonation while intentionally courting political and religious controversy.
