  • Offers a long-overdue response to the lingering stereotype of the 'all-male' stage
  • Makes a significant contribution to the study of drama, gender and patronage by integrating new approaches from these fields with performance methodologies
  • Enriches the existing picture of late-medieval women by showing how performance enabled them to create and participate in public urban culture
  • Provides a unique portrait of the life of an individual woman by investigating the full spectrum of evidence for her performances in depth: drama, liturgy, impersonation, devotional practice and documentary culture
