About the Book:

Rare book, very limited quantities available

Shakespeare's Globe is proving to be one of the great success stories in the theatre world. As well as Shakespeare, its programme includes plays by many of his contemporaries. In fact, for every play by Shakespeare there are over ten surviving plays by other writers from the same era. A selection of these plays have been brought back into print as Globe Quartos. These non-Shakespearean plays of the English Renaissance are being rediscovered and revived with great success at Shakespeare's Globe both in full production and in staged readings.

Once famed for its obscenity, The Custom of the Country is vigorous and enjoyable play by John Fletcher (1579-1625) and Philip Massinger (1583-1640), which traces the fortunes of two brothers shipwrecked in a foreign land. By turns poignant and risque, sentimental and satirical, its beautifully crafted plot embodies the collaborative art of its authors.
