The four plays in this volume represent just a small fraction of the total output by early modern women dramatists.Marcelia (1660), The Perjur'd Husband (1700), She Ventures and He Wins (1695) and The Unnatural Mother (1698) were written at a point in time when women playwrights were becoming a significant force in the theatre. Many of these plays were first performed in key theatrical venues by well-established drama companies.The scant critical attention paid to these works since they were first written begins to be rectified in this volume. Stephanie Hodgson-Wright discusses the playwrights and their texts, and explains the choice of editions printed here.
