19th March 2016, University of Kent

Medieval English Theatre is a society which exists to promote interest in and study of early theatre both within and beyond the academic community. Since 1979 it has published an international refereed journal, Medieval English Theatre, now one of the leading publications on medieval and Tudor theatre up to the rise of the commercial playhouses and the suppression of the civic religious drama.  

Every year Medieval English Theatre runs a conference meeting around the last Saturday in March, each time at a different venue and on a different topic in the study of early theatre. This year the Medieval English Theatre Meeting is on Transnational Drama, hosted by Clare Wright at the University of Kent, and will be preceded by the Early English Drama & Performance Network‘s first Postgraduate and Early Career Symposium. Please contact Tamara Haddad ( for more details.
