Episode 67

In this third part of the story of theatre in the Italian Renaissance the counter reformation overshadows the work of playwrights.

We conclude the story of Giovan Maria Cecchi with a look at his later sacred drama that still managed to amuse and entertain.

The plays of Leone de'Sommi are mostly lost thanks to a library fire, but his surviving plays are of interest as we see a Jewish playwright operating both in and for the culture of his community and in the context of broader renaissance theatre.

The review concludes with the work of Giambattista della Porta, a Neapolitan playwright who was outspoken in his plays and paid and fell foul of the Italian Inquisition.
