Medieval & Renaissance Drama in England is an international volume published every year contains essays and studies as well as book reviews of the many significant books and essays dealing with early modern England drama before 1642.

Volume 20 reflects a variety of scholarly interests, ranging from a forum on race, racism, and performance to articles addressing madness and hagiography in Hamlet, the staging of suffering in King Lear. Various authors have also contributed essays on the historical and theoretical issues relating to the actor's body, the handling of foreign languages on the English stage, and the use of stage curtains. Additionally the volume includes extended notes concerning a 17th-century playhouse in Tonbridge, Kent, and the professional lineage of Robert Armin.

MaRDiE continues its custom of publishing review essays in one overview of books relating to the English history play and a second overview of drugs and medicine on the early modern stage. Reviews - long and short - complete the volume. An international board of leading scholars and cultural historians maintains the quality of each annual volume, so Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England can be relied upon as a useful source for all students of early English drama - for directors, teachers, and actors, as well as for specialists in college and university study. Readers who wish to deepen their understanding of this drama will find in each volume wide-ranging discussions of topics such as music, politics, aesthetics, philosophy, painting, and the questions of material culture, as these matters apply to the interpretation of drama as cultural production.
