The Robt Greene topic reminds me. Renn. scholars in the U.S. should be aware of work in Britain which has changed/supplemented knowledge of earlier drama. Greg Walker’s work is a good key to the whole and and his history re-names the “morality” play as part of Tudor Drama in his book of that name, his anthology, and bibliography. Recently, he and colleagues produced a two-year program on Ane Satyre of the Thrie Estaitis which included a full length production of the play in 2013 and a film of the production. (Greg is the Regius Professor at Edinburgh.) There is little comparable work in the U.S. The Lyndsay play is now taught in Scottish schools and it was quoted by the Speaker at the original opening of the Scottish Parliament. So it is alive and well there. (I’m pleased to know that my book has stimulated succeeding scholarship on Lyndsay, and I was a guest at the 2013 play production where the director used my book to understand the play.)
