However, little has been devoted to early modern plays as adaptations. As adapters, early modern playwrights were part of a cultural network where adapting a play from a panoply of texts was a patternThe proposed panel seeks to shed light on early modern playwrights as adapters who had to please the audience’s eyes and ears and to negotiate the cultural and political limits of a production. It also intends to further delve into the mechanisms of the industry of adaptation in early modern England through stage productions.
