Description

Records of Early English Drama North-east, a five-year project based at Durham University, is researching and collecting all the surviving records of performance from Northumberland, Durham and the three historic Ridings of Yorkshire; the results, to be published as five collections in the Records of Early English Drama series, will fill one of the last remaining uncharted areas in the field of English performance history up to the Seventeenth Century.

The papers in this session witness the variety of the evidence already discovered, and how it reflects the different geographical and social contexts of the activities recorded, public and private, formal and informal: Corpus Christi celebrations in the unique and powerful city of Durham and the east Yorkshire market town of Beverley; wedding celebrations in the family of a great magnate; and village performance as score-settling.
