Thomas Cavendish on the early modern stage

Johnson, Laurie and McInnis, David (2018) Thomas Cavendish on the early modern stage. Notes and Queries. pp. 1-3. ISSN 0029-3970


This article identifies two items in Edward Alleyn's list of playing apparel (c.1601-1602) as references to the East Anglian seafarer Thomas Cavendish. The authors propose that the lost play The New World's Tragedy is a viable source for the character of Cavendish on the early modern stage.
