Dutch Courtesan book. Read 8 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. New Mermaids are modern spelling, fully-annotated editions of import /5. The Dutch Courtesan is an early Jacobean stage play written by the dramatist and satirist John Marston circa It was performed by the Children of the Queen's Revels, one of the troupes of boy actors active at the time, in the Blackfriars Theatre in London.

The play was entered into the Stationers' Register on 26 Juneand published later that year by the bookseller John Hodgets. June, pm, Department of Theatre, Film and Television Scenic Stage Theatre, Heslington East Campus, University of York. One of the greatest Jacobean comedies, John Marston’s masterpiece weaves together tales of sexual obsession, clever con-tricks, and radical freethinking into a striking plot which leads two of its characters to the foot of the gallows.

One of the few recent modern productions of The Dutch Courtesan was presented in by Edward’s Boys, the all-boys company set up by Perry Mills in with students from King Edward’s School, Stratford-upon-Avon.

Edward’s Boys has established itself as one of the foremost companies working on the early modern repertory. The Dutch Courtesan is a good read if you enjoy plays of this era. You can feel what it might have been like to have attended plays and lived in that time and place.

New Mermaids editions tend to be excellent and this one is no exception. The notes are helpful without inflicting overly scholarly material on general readers like me.4/5(1). The Dutch Courtesan is a riotous tragicomedy that explores the delights and perils afforded by Jacobean London.

While Freevill, an educated young Englishman and the play's nominal hero, frolics in the city's streets, taverns and brothels, Franceschina, his cast-off mistress and the Dutch courtesan of the play's title,laments his betrayal and plots : Paperback.
