By attending closely to their dramaturgical structures, Gamboa analyses casting requirements for all the plays Shakespeare wrote for the company between 1594-1610, and describes how using the embedded casting patterns can enhance their thematic and theatrical potential. Drawing on historical records, dramatic theory and contemporary performance this innovative work questions received ideas about early modern staging and provides scholars and contemporary theatre practitioners with a valuable guide to understanding how casting can be exploited to facilitate audience engagement. Supported by an appendix of speculative doubling charts for plays, illustrations and online resources, this is a major contribution to the understanding of Shakespeare\'s dramatic craft\"--<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Cover; Half-title; Title page; Copyright information; Table of contents; List of figures; List of tables; Acknowledgements; Introduction; Establishing Realism and Credibility through Artifice; Doubling from Medieval to Modern Times; Shakespeare\'s Double Plays; Doubling Criticism and Speculation; 1 \'Improbable Fictions\'; Drama at and after the Margins; Conventions, Casting, and Cutting against the Natural; Metadrama 2.0; Onstage Graveyards and Embodied Ghosts; Embodied Ghosts and Doubling in Hamlet; 2 Versatility and Verisimilitude on Sixteenth-Century Stages; \'Put money in thy purse\'<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"1. \u2018Improbable Fictions\u2019 -- 2.
