Episode 112

To close season five of the podcast I pick up three items I dropped in the previous narrative and then offer some concluding thoughts:

Thomas Watson – the life and works of the possible co-author of ‘Arden of Faversham.

Henry Chettle – the life and works of the prolific collaborator.

Thomas Heywood – the life and works of a playwright now better remembered for his commentary on others rather than for his own work.

Drawing some conclusions on:

The public playhouses

The players

The State vs. the theatre

The growth of education

Pamphlets, prose, and poetry

Christopher Marlowe

The city of London

The lesser known playwrights
