Summary:
"Richard Brome was the leading comic playwright of 1630s London. Starting his career as manservant to Ben Jonson, he went on to write a string of highly successful comedies, remarkable for their satirical bite and surreal humour, which were influential on British theatre long after Brome's own playwriting career was cut short by the closure of the theatres in 1642."
