Sunday Feature: Myths and Mystery Cycles (Media Coverage)
Author(s): Tom Alban (producer)
Publication: BBC Radio 3
Date: 9/12/2010
Abstract: Radio program (45 min.) incl. excerpts of interviews with REED editors and interested scholars. The Records of Early English Drama is now one of the biggest research projects ever to have taken place in the study of English literature. It's brief is to 'establish the broad context from which the great drama of Shakespeare and his contemporaries grew'. But rather than look again at the extant texts and folios of the mystery plays and pageants of the early medieval period, a small army of REED (Records of Early English Drama) scholars, marshalled from their HQ at the University of Toronto, are combing through church and court records for any reference to plays, music, pageant and performance that they can find.
