Summary
"The Royal Shakespeare Company's 2002 season presented five classical works, rarely seen in the theatre but ripe for rediscovery by a new audience. These five plays constitute a body of work written by Shakespeare and his contemporaries, presenting the great diversity of the drama of the period, from city comedy to revenge tragedy, from discovery plays to the latest addition to the Shakespeare canon. Each is published in a separate volume alongside the RSC production." "Domitian, the tyrannical and insanely jealous Roman Emperor, wreaks havoc and bloody revenge when he discovers his wife's infidelity with Paris, the Roman actor of the title. Regarded as Massinger's finest play, The Roman Actor is both a condemnation of tyranny and a noble defence of the then despised profession of acting."--Jacket.
