This panel will ask what can be learned from approaching Christopher Marlowe as a primarily dramatic writer. Papers will be asked to think about plays from a theatrical standpoint, examining the force of performance as a shaping factor in the reception of Marlowe’s plays. We encourage studies of the stage history of Marlowe’s works; additionally, plays that consider the texts within the context of Elizabethan stage history are also welcome. Please send abstracts of 250 words to Louise Geddes at LGeddes@adelphi.edu
