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 craft and wit of Thomas Middleton (1580-1627) abound in this masterly satire of London Society at the turn of the 17th century. In A Mad World, My Master, disjointed and dysfunctional families wrangle and plot, cuckold and gull, 'but women's wit is ever at full moon'. Thomas Middleton has become a favourite with audiences at the Globe Theatre, where A Mad World, My Master was revived in 1998.
