This is the sixth volume of a detailed play-by-play catalogue of drama written by English, Welsh, Irish, and Scottish authors during the 110 years between the English Reformation to the English Revolution, covering every known play, extant and lost, including some which have never before been identified. It is based on a complete, systematic survey of the whole of this body of work, presented in chronological order. Each entry contains comprehensive information about a single play: its various titles, authorship, and date; a summary of its plot, list of its roles, and details of the human and geographical world in which the fictional action takes place; a list of its sources, narrative and verbal, and a summary of its formal characteristics; details of its staging requirements; and an account of its early stage and textual history.

..".a remarkable achievement...ground-breaking. Wiggins is to be congratulated for the untiring spirit of enquiry which has sustained him since the beginning of this century and will see him through to the completion of his vast enterprise. All students of English Renaissance drama owe him an incalculable debt. His Catalogue, I predict, will be one of the first volumes one reaches for, and one of the last to be put back on the shelf." --The Spenser Review
