“I’m a huge fan of Playhouse Lab. It’s fun and collegial, and it’s introduced me to plays and playwrights I’d never come across before. I’ve found it so helpful for thinking about the early modern period and its literature, but it’s also great as a place to enjoy the spirit of play.”
— John Gallagher, Lecturer in Early Modern History, School of History, University of Leeds
