The Honest Whore

By Thomas Dekker

Paperback £14.99£11.99

A Globe Quarto co-published with Shakespeare's Globe marking their rediscoveries of forgotten plays by Shakespeare's contemporaries.

A play in two parts, following the lives of a princess and a whore. Although set in Italy, this passionate tale of paternal disapproval and sexual deceit savours more of the underworld of Jacobean London with its asylums and prisons, gambling and prostitution.

This edition presents both parts of the play, which was revived in a condensed version at the Globe Theatre in 1998.

Press Quotes

'A darkly satisfying piece... a surprisingly modern work about sexual betrayal and emotional violence, relieved by moments of cruel comedy'
