What is CADRE?[edit | edit source]

Inspired by the Lost Plays Database, CADRE or Co-Authored Drama in Renaissance England is a wiki-style forum for scholars to share evidence and information about the co-authorship – a term that includes practices of collaboration, revision, and adaptation – of early modern plays and other entertainments.

In this beta phase, we have elected to focus on non-Shakespearean drama as we develop and road-test the platform.
