Although in the public playhouses of Shakespeare’s time female roles were played by boys, awareness is growing of the participation of women themselves in early modern drama. Much of this took place at great country houses like Knole in Kent, home of Lady Anne Clifford. Come and hear lecturers from University College London explore Clifford's connection with Samuel Daniel's Tragedie of Cleopatra, while actors recreate scenes from the play.

Early Modern Exchanges

The Centre for Early Modern Exchanges (EME) is dedicated to the study of the diverse cultural, historical, economic and social exchanges between England and Europe, European countries, the Old World and the New in the period 1450-1800. Our work focuses on the complex intercultural interactions underlying the emergence of national identities and vernacular literatures in this period, interrogating labels such as 'England' or 'Britain', 'East' and 'West', the 'New World' and 'Europe'.
