Summary
This book explores the relationship between William Shakespeare's plays and a tradition of late medieval English biblical drama known as mystery plays. Scholars of English theater have long debated Shakespeare's connection to the mystery play tradition, but this book provides new perspective on the subject by focusing on the Chester Banns, a sixteenth-century proclamation announcing the annual performance of that city's cycle of mystery plays. Through close study of the Banns, the book demonstrates the central importance of medieval stage objects - as vital and direct agents and not merely as precursors - to the Shakespearean stage
