This early work is a collection of pre-Shakespearean comedies. The plays include: “Fulgens and Lucrece”, by Henry Medwall; “The Four PP”, by John Haywood; “Ralph Roiser Doister”, by Nicholas Udall; “Suposes”, by George Gascoigne, and “Gammer Gurton's Needle”. This fantastic collection is highly recommended for all fans of the stage, and constitutes a must-read for comedy lovers. Many classic books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
