In spring 2016 I submitted a proposal to Globe Education to run a Research in Action workshop on staging The Jew of Malta in an indoor playhouse. This was accepted and took place on 6 June 2016 in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, with the help of Will Tosh from Globe Education and four actors. This article first discusses what happened at the workshop and then moves on to consider what The Jew of Malta might have looked like on the Caroline stage, with specific reference to two other plays which I suggest might have impacted on its reception in the 1630s, Chettle’s Hoffman and Ford’s Love’s Sacrifice.
