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.

The two plays included in this volume follow the lives of a princess and a whore. Although set in Italy, this passionate tale of paternal disapproval and sexual deceit savours more of the underworld of Jacobean London with its asylums and prisons, gambling and prostitution. This edition of The Honest Whore presents both parts of the play by Thomas Dekker (c.1570-1632), which was revived in a condensed version at the Globe Theatre in 1998.
