Since 1995, Globe Education’s Read Not Dead series has staged 'performances with scripts' of plays written between 1576 and 1642 by Shakespeare’s contemporaries. The Lady Mother was first performed at the indoor Salisbury Court Theatre by the King’s Revels company in 1635. This lively Caroline tragicomedy explores themes of sexual jealousy and matriarchal ambition, juxtaposing elements of dark tragedy against absurd comedy. It ends in a curious, but strangely restorative ‘death masque’.
