The Wise Woman of Hoxton

By Thomas Heywood

Paperback £12.99£10.39

There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

Part of the Globe Quartos series, co-published with Shakespeare's Globe marking their rediscoveries of forgotten plays by Shakespeare's contemporaries.

A city comedy complete with cross-dressing and disguise, dating from around 1605.

The eponymous 'wise woman' is alternately dismissed as a charlatan or cursed as a she-devil, but she outsmarts gullible citizens and rakish gentlemen alike as the action moves through colourful Cheapside and the Exchange to its festive climax in Hoxton.

Edited by Sonia Massai.
