Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it… and that’s why this month we’re exploring John Ford’s Perkin Warbeck (published 1634). After all, we haven’t talked about a history play since way back in Episode Two.
The podcast is back! Sorry there was no episode in June, Yoli was travelling and didn’t pack her microphone. We’re making it up to you by discussing a delightfully adorable play: John Lyly’s Galatea (c. 1584).
This episode was recorded “live” from the Shakespeare Association of America Conference! (To learn more about what happened at the conference this year, check out all the posts with #ShakeAss16 on Twitter).
This episode also features the voice and the wisdom of a special guest expert: Dr. Cassie Ash!
Authorship (Who is this Anon guy anyway, and how did he write so many plays?!)
Huge thanks to Gary Taylor and Terri Borus for allowing us to talk about their SAA seminar on Arden of Faversham. Taylor and Borus have edited this play for the New Oxford Shakespeare edition of Shakespeare’s Complete Works, which will be published later this year.
