Travelling Players in Shakespeare's England is the first extended study of the touring practices and performances of Elizabethan and Jacobean travelling players. It opens with a general introduction to the lively, competitive world of professional touring theatre.

The final chapter looks at the decline of this important theatrical tradition in the 1620s.
