Records of Early English Drama North-East (REED N-E) is part of a massive international project to assemble a complete survey of medieval and early modern performance in Britain. The REED volumes are to scholars in literature and theatre what Pevsner is to architects and art historians.
REED-NE will be a critical edition of all surviving records of performance and entertainment in England’s North-East from about the ninth century up to 1642. REED has already made some fascinating discoveries from the archives of the region. Check out the Flowers of the Month in our blog.
Discover Medieval Drama from the North East
As part of the project we’ve been bringing forgotten North East theatrical, musical and performance traditions back to life. See some of the videos below or visit our online exhibition.
