Digital Renaissance Editions

Performance Database

The Performance Database includes full descriptions of non-Shakespearean early English drama on film, as well as illustrations of historical performances and representative collections of modern productions.

The database is an innovative, searchable resource that will appeal to actors, directors, students, scholars, and theater-goers, illustrating the liveliness and variety of modern performances of early English drama on stage and screen. Contributors come from around the world and range from professional theater companies to school drama groups. The database also includes graphic illustrations of the plays from earlier periods. 

The academic development of the Performance Database is overseen by an Editorial Board of international scholars and professionals in theater and film.
