NOVEMBER 17 – 18 2017

Confirmed speakers include
Gabriel Egan, Jean Howard, Charles Nicholl, Lois Potter,
Robert Sawyer, Gary Taylor, Brian Vickers and Stanley Wells

Proposals are invited for 25-minute presentations, or panels of presentations, at a conference,  hosted by the Kingston Shakespeare Seminar, on Marlowe and Shakespeare, to be held at the  Rose Theatre, Kingston-upon-Thames, on Friday November 17 and Saturday November 18 2017.

Opened in 2007 as a replica of its Elizabethan namesake, Kingston’s Rose Theatre recently  staged Trevor Nunn’s production of The Wars of the Roses, and the focus of this conference will  be on Marlowe and Shakespeare as colleagues and possible collaborators on the original Rose  playhouse performances of plays such as the early histories. Papers will therefore be welcome  on any aspect of the Bankside Rose, including its architecture, audiences, personnel, patrons, practices and repertoire, as well as on questions of Marlovian and early Shakespearean attribution, authorship, biography, influence, reputation and rivalry.

Abstracts of up to 200 words should be sent by July 31st 2017 to Professor Richard Wilson at
