Emeritus Professor Andrew Gurr
Andrew Gurr has been emeritus for some years now, but is still publishing the products of his research. As a leading theatre historian, he works mainly in the Shakespeare territory. For twenty years he chaired the committees that designed the new Globe in London, and is currently a Trustee working to put the remains of the Rose Theatre on display.
Recent books include, besides a fourth edition of THE SHAKESPEARE STAGE 1574-1642, and a third of PLAYGOING IN SHAKESPEARE'S LONDON, new books about the two leading companies of Shakespeare's time, THE SHAKESPEARE COMPANY, 1594-1642, and SHAKESPEARE'S OPPOSITES: THE ADMIRAL'S COMPANY, 1594-1625. In addition, in the last decade he had published fifteen articles about the theatre history of this period.
