Part of the Globe Quartos series, co-published with Shakespeare’s Globe marking their rediscoveries of forgotten plays by Shakespeare’s contemporaries.

Once famed for its obscenity, this 17th-century play traces the fortunes of two brothers shipwrecked in a foreign land. By turns poignant and risqué, sentimental and satirical, its beautifully crafted plot embodies the collaborative art of its authors.

It was given a staged reading in 1998 as part of Globe Education’s on-going programme to record with professional casts all the non-Shakespearean plays of the English Renaissance.

Edited by Nick de Somogyi.
