This chapter examines the evidence from Lord Strange’s Men’s repertory of plays that points to engagement with controversies in politics and religion. This evidence includes the prominence of contemporary geopolitics in the archive behind the plays, staging acts of cruelty and mass violence, restaging of scenes from the forbidden cycle plays, critiques of both papist and puritan zeal, and the prominence of subaltern heroes who resist conformity with established authority.

Keywords:   Lord Strange’s Men, plays, politics, religion, geopolitics, subaltern heroes
