Texts in Plays

This year the Medieval English Theatre meeting is on Texts in Plays: the use of books, letters, and written material on stage. It aims to look across the range of uses of written and read material in staging medieval drama of all genres. This might include documents associated with play production and their functions, books as physical properties on stage, scenes involving public or private writing or reading, written material as part of visual presentation in plays, processions, and entries, or any other stage use of the written or printed word.

It will be
