Spoilers: The Tragedy of Mariam (Introduction/Argument)
Slightly spoilery introduction to the backstory of The Tragedy of Mariam by Elizabeth Cary
Welcome to this first spoiler episode to The Tragedy of Mariam, the Fair Queen of Jewry by Elizabeth Cary - and it's sort of not very spoilery! It's all about backstory and what comes before the action of the play (though there are some spoilers to the play). Host Robert Crighton attempts to explain the backstory and then is joined by Pamela Flanagan (who will be playing Salome) to read through Elizabeth Cary's attempt to explain the backstory. It's super hard... so just relax.
BE WARNED - If you just want to listen to the play as a play, don't listen to the spoilers episodes. Come back later, or don't listen. However, if you find early drama hard to follow, then you will get a good grounding in the action here - especially as we may make changes or cuts for our final version! The plain text version is rough in hew, it will change and we produce it in part to hunt out errors.
For text, there's loads online - for example the Norton https://wwnorton.com/college/english/nael/noa/pdf/27636_17th_U03_Cary-1-51.pdf
