Abstract

This essay looks at travelling players' visits to the Essex town of Maldon. It explores what the history of these visits in the Elizabethan and Stuart eras reveals about attitudes to drama in the community during this period and how these attitudes were influenced by changing views of patronage and the local rise of puritanism.
