The Changeling by Thomas Middleton and William Rowley is a luridly sensual dramatic work which was highly regarded in its day, but then largely forgotten until its revival three hundred years later. This timely Handbook:
• offers a detailed theatrical commentary which tracks the motivations of the capricious characters and explores performance possibilities
• examines the cultural conditions that gave rise to the play, juxtaposing them with the conditions of the twentieth century
• analyses early performances as well as later stage and film productions
• presents key critical debates and assessments of The Changeling.

JAY O'BERSKI Assistant Professor of the Practice of Theater Studies at Duke University, USA. He is Artistic Director of The Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern and Associate Artistic Director of Manbites Dog Theater.
