Where have all the players gone? A Chester Problem

  • David Mills Lancaster University

Abstract

Evidence for travelling companies performing in Chester in the later 16th-early 17th.centuries is sparse. Drawing upon both published REED material and documents recently discovered, David Mills suggests that, while the political situation within the city fluctuated between support for and opposition to such visits, there is nevertheless good reason to believe that Cestrians had opportunities to watch professional performances.
