Hardback. 270pp. The N-Town Play, from fifteenth-century East Anglia is a compilation of late-medieval vernacular theatre. It differs from the better-known Northern medieval mystery plays in that it offers a double cycle of Christ's life together with that of the Virgin Mary, incorporating much liturgical material. This book, the first full-length study to be devoted to to the N-Town Play, provides a complete reassessment of the play, setting it in its geographical, religious and political context. In particular, its discussion of the Eucharist raises questions about the play's supposed orthodoxy within the context of Lollard controversies.
