Staging the Revolution

Drama, reinvention and history, 1647-72

Rachel Willie

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides a concise overview of the ways in which drama was used as a form of political didacticism in the mid-seventeenth century
  • Offers a reappraisal of the ways royalists and cavaliers reenacted mid-seventeenth century concerns in print and on stage
  • Challenges the idea that, from its inception, the Restoration stage was royalist
  • Demonstrates how, through dramatic representation, mid-seventeenth century fabrications regarding cavaliers and roundheads became axioms
