Early Theatre

Early Theatre is a peer-reviewed journal that welcomes research in medieval or early modern drama and theatre history, rooted in the records and documents of England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. The journal also publishes articles or notes on related materials either in Europe, or in parts of the world where English or European travellers, traders, and colonizers observed performances by other peoples. Although primarily focused on the performance history of any art, entertainment, or festive occasion of the period, Early Theatre also publishes interpretive or literary articles relating to the performances themselves. Each year the journal also features 'Issues in Review,' a section of related, short essays that together highlight new research directions and shape the field for further study.
