massacreAnd today a post from writer and historian Mathew Lyons’ very interesting blog.

This The Massacre at Paris: Kit Marlowe, the Rose Playhouse and me is an intelligent and thoroughly enjoyable look at Marlowe, his last play, theatre in general, what appears to have been a remarkable production of the Massacre, and the role Mathew Lyons played in it.

With no prior acting experience, he found himself plunged into a complex professional production of a difficult play… The esperience seems to have been both terrifying and exhilarating. I have no difficulty believing it.
