The Blind Beggar of Alexandria

This web-site is an online dramaturgy packet for the American Shakespeare Center’s Actor’s Renaissance Season production of George Chapman’s The Blind Beggar of Alexandria. The Site is intended to present the dramaturgical information in an easily accessible format allowing the actors to easily navigate and find the information they want from this packet.

To the left is a menu that navigates to different areas of research. Characters lists each character in the play and provides both information on the character in the play, and on the Character’s namesake. The text area has a plot summary, notes on the text, and a PDF of the full text. The References section has a list of Classical and Biblical references made in the play. Finally the Comedia section has a brief overview of Comedia dell’Arte. The Bibliography links to a list of sources I used in preparing this document.
If you find a dead link please let me know. I will get it up and running ASAP.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Using the link above.
