Subject: 	Women Writing About Seeing Early Modern Plays

Dear SHAKSPERians,

I'm aware of a number of diaries and letters in which early modern men 
write about going to or seeing theatrical productions.  I'm unaware of 
any texts by early modern women that record their experiences going to 
or seeing plays between about 1580 and 1642.  I'm primarily interested 
in non-fiction accounts, but would also find fictionalized accounts 
helpful.  If you're aware of any early modern texts by women that might 
help me, I'd appreciate hearing.

Please respond off-list to me at

Thanks in advance for your help,
