Records of Early English Drama (REED)-Centre for Research in Early English Drama
(REED) is an international scholarly project that is establishing the context from which the drama of Shakespeare and his contemporaries grew. REED has worked to locate, transcribe, and edit historical documents containing evidence of drama, secular music, and other communal entertainment and ceremony from the Middle Ages until 1642, when the Puritans closed the London theatres. Along with twenty-seven collections of records in print, REED is building a dynamic collection of freely available digital resources for research and education.
