This lavishly illustrated book is the first investigation into the history of performances of Greek tragedy in Britain from 1660 onwards. It assembles discussion of the translations, plays, authors, actors, and audiences, and sets them in the context of contemporary politics, society, and culture. It argues that Greek tragedy was a radical and progressive force in the professional theatre.
