Early Theatre: A Journal associated with the Records of Early English
Drama (acronym ET/REED, ISSN 1206-9078) will appear annually beginning in
the fall of 1998. Early Theatre is a peer-reviewed journal with a
nine-menber international editorial board. The first volume will contain
articles and notes on a variety of cultural and theatrical concerns, such

         John J. McGavin on early Scottish attitudes to plays and performance in
"The Kirk, the Burgh, and Fun"
         Robert Tittler on new biographical material concerning "Henry Hardware
of Chester and the Face of Puritan Reform"
         W. R. Streitberger on household and court preparations involved in
"Devising the Revels"
         David Mills on travelling players in Chester
         James Stokes on the waits in Lincolnshire
         Dominick Grace on the apothecary scene in Romeo and Juliet

Early Theatre is also experimenting with a new reviewing format. For the
first issue, several scholars, including Barbara Palmer, David Bevington,
Garrett Epp, Peter Meredith, David Mills, and Ralph Blasting will
participate in a forum reviewing the York Cycle in performance, in Toronto
(June) and in the city of York (July), with comments on various aspects of
staging, special effects, and treatment of text.

We invite you to show your support for the new journal by subscribing to
Early Theatre for an initial one- or two-year period. Our new publisher,
McMaster University Press, will be taking over the subscription lists in
May, and we anticipate that the cost of the journal may increase within
the next two years. If you wish to subscribe now, at the current prices,
