This exciting new anthology captures the variety and richness of Restoration Drama.

It provides annotated and judiciously modernized texts of eighteen plays, representing many of the different types of play put on in the period (sex comedy, moral comedy, heroic drama, Shakespearean adaptation and political history).The even distribution of the plays throughout the period encourages students to reflect on the development of the drama over the full 50 years covered by the anthology.

It includes plays by both men and women, as well as dramatic ripostes such as The Rehearsal and The Relapse, which evoke so vividly the adversarial and dialectical world of the theatre in the second half of the seventeenth century.
