Spaces for Women’s drama: an interview with Marion Wynne-Davies

Watch this interview with Professor Marion Wynne-Davies on how Lumley's "Iphigenia," sets a precedent for Mary Sidney Herbert's "Tragedy of Antony"

In this interview, Professor Marion Wynne-Davie discusses the use of household spaces for women’s drama, the banqueting house at Nonesuch for Lumley’s “Iphigenia,” (1557) and the Sidney-Herbert country houses from which Mary Sidney Herbert’s “Tragedy of Antony” (1592) and Lady Mary Wroth’s “Love’s Victory” c1619-21) were composed.

As you are listening, think about the ways in which the Sidney women’s drama crosses the boundaries between public and private.
