Linking the development of London’s theatres directly to the capital’s spectacular demographic and economic growth during the second half of the 16th century, Howard argues that the theatre was important in shaping people’s perception of new urban environments. In chapters on the Royal Exchange, London’s debtors’ prisons, its whorehouses, and the West End, the study explores how dramas helped construct the social relations and activity within these locations.
