Summary

The Antipodes, first published in 1640, is a "city comedy" by Richard Brome. Written in an age of travel and exploration, the play depicts the topsy-turvy "world upside down" of London in the 1630s. The plot hinges around the main character Peregrine's obsession with travel books. An inventive play-within-the-play, also called "The Antipodes," dupes Peregrine into believing that he has been transported to the ends of the earth, with the aim of recalling him to his marital duties. This is the only available single-play edition of this extraordinary Jacobean play.
