Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0230242995, Paperback)

'Tis Pity She's a Whore is one of the most controversial plays ever staged in the English theatre. This introductory guide to one of Ford's most read and performed plays offers a scene-by-scene theatrically aware commentary, a brief history of the text and first performances, case studies of key performances and productions, a survey of film and TV adaptations, and a wide sampling of critical opinion and further reading.

In this illuminating Handbook, Martin White:


offers an in-depth, moment-by-moment analysis of the play, looking at how it might be performed on stage
provides vital contextual material on John Ford's social and literary influences
reconstructs the play's performances in Ford's own time and examines later stage, television and film productions
guides the reader through the often heated critical and theatrical responses to the dramatic work.
