After the construction of the first permanent theatre buildings since Antiquity in mid-16th-century Italy, drama triumphed throughout Europe, especially in 17th-century France, Golden Age Spain, and Elizabethan, Jacobean and Restoration England. How did the growth of the book industry interact with the evolution of the theatre? This exhibition catalogue addresses the question by exploring the relationship between performance and printing, viewing Renaissance and Baroque theatre as a unique intersection of social spectacle and literary activity.
