Each is published in a separate volume alongside the RSC production." "Domitian, the tyrannical and insanely jealous Roman Emperor, wreaks havoc and bloody revenge when he discovers his wife's infidelity with Paris, the Roman actor of the title. Regarded as Massinger's finest play, The Roman Actor is both a condemnation of tyranny and a noble defence of the then despised profession of acting."--BOOK JACKET."
