Summary
Time and again, early modern plays show people at work - shoemaking and grave-digging are just two of the forms of labour that theatregoers could have seen depicted on stage in 1599 and 1600. Tom Rutter demonstrates how such representations were shaped by the theatre's own problematic relationship with work. -- Publisher's description
