What have we discovered about performance practice in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse since the opening of the intimate candlelit theatre at Shakespeare's Globe? Playing Indoors reveals the results of a two-year study into the performance of Elizabethan and Jacobean drama in this unique theatre, drawing together insights into early modern stage practice and the observations of today's actors and spectators. A history of the encounters of artists and audience members who experienced the space first, the book is also a study of the significance of re-imagined theatres like the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse and the Globe. Accessibly written for students, scholars, artists and theatre-goers, Playing Indoors is a valuable contribution to the young field of early modern practice-as-research.

MEDIA REVIEWS
With academic rigour, with mischievous wit, and with infectious excitement, Will Tosh records the progress of the creation of this jewel of a new theatre. A book of sharp pleasure. -- DOMINIC DROMGOOLE, Director, Classic Spring & Open Palm Films
This is a fascinating cultural history of a new theatre and its reception; it offers a perceptive reading of our contemporary relationship with the "Jacobean" and draws upon a wealth of scholarly research, artists' experience and audience responses, to explore how architecture, aesthetics, text and practitioner create theatrical meaning. -- BRIDGET ESCOLME, Queen Mary University of London, UK
Will Tosh's exhilarating exploration makes Theatre History anew as the history of a single theatre. This is a superbly engaging scholarly celebration of a remarkable theatre space. -- PETER HOLLAND, University of Notre Dame, USA
