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

In this entertainingly far-fetched play, Rowley combines mythical tales of the origin of St Alban’s with folklore about the craft of shoemaking to produce a comic history which draws together the foundations of British nationhood, the establishment of the Church of England, and the beginnings of dynastic rule.

Edited by Trudi Darby.
