A jovial crew by Richard Brome( file )
162 editions published between 1652 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 2,644 libraries worldwide
A Jovial Crew, or the Merry Beggars, is a comedy about four noble lovers who join the beggar community for a pastoral life of dance and song. Or is it? Whilst maintaining its unremitting good humour, A Jovial Crew shows that the literary depiction of beggar life, and real beggar life, are profoundly different. Daily aspects of life in the beggar world - poverty, dirt, licentiousness - come as a surprise to the well-born, who are ultimately led to question their own values. The last production mounted before theatres were closed for the English Civil War, A Jovial Crew's exploration of class, commonwealth, kinship and kingship shows an intense engagement with contemporary politics. This edition, with dedicated sections on music and language in the play, argues that A Jovial Crew also offers a nostalgic farewell to English theatre. It explores Brome's attitude to performance and print, and follows A Jovial Crew from its first, Caroline staging, to its later manifestations as a Restoration comedy, an eighteenth-century opera, and a twentieth-century proto-Marxist tragicomedy
The antipodes by Richard Brome( Book )
23 editions published between 1640 and 2000 in English and held by 933 libraries worldwide
The Antipodes, first published in 1640, is a "city comedy" by Richard Brome. Written in an age of travel and exploration, the play depicts the topsy-turvy "world upside down" of London in the 1630s. The plot hinges around the main character Peregrine's obsession with travel books. An inventive play-within-the-play, also called "The Antipodes", dupes Peregrine into believing that he has been transported to the ends of the earth, with the aim of recalling him to his marital duties. This is the only available single-play edition of this extraordinary Jacobean play
