Most widely held works by Richard Brome
The antipodes by Richard Brome( Book )
49 editions published between 1640 and 2011 in English and held by 1,068 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
A jovial crew by Richard Brome( Book )
38 editions published between 1652 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 685 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

Richard Brome : place and politics on the Caroline stage by Matthew Steggle( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
"Matthew Steggle's book offers the first full-length chronological account of Brome's life and works, drawing on a wide range of recently discovered manuscript sources. It traces the early hostility to Brome from those who wrote him off as a mere servant; his continued struggles with plague closures, contract disputes; and theatrical takeover bids; and his literary relationships with Jonson, Shakespeare, and others. Each of the surviving play is discussed in relation to its social and political context, and in particular to its sense of place." "Richard Brome will be of interest to students interested in Caroline literature and culture; in the evolution of English comedy; and in early modern theatre generally."--Jacket
