A passionate tale of paternal disapproval and sexual deceit, following the lives of a princess and a whore.

Although set in Italy, The Honest Whore is full of the flavour of the underworld of Jacobean London, with its asylums and prisons, gambling and prostitution.

This edition of Thomas Dekker’s play The Honest Whore, in the Globe Quarto series co-published with Shakespeare’s Globe to mark the rediscovery of forgotten plays by Shakespeare’s contemporaries, includes both parts of the play, which was revived in a condensed version at the Globe Theatre, London, in 1998.

‘A darkly satisfying piece… a surprisingly modern work about sexual betrayal and emotional violence, relieved by moments of cruel comedy’
Daily Telegraph
