Equestrian Drama: An Anthology of Plays is a collection of four representative equestrian dramas.

It includes four annotated plays: Timour the Tartar by Matthew G. Lewis, The Battle of Waterloo by J. H. Amherst, Mazeppa by Henry M. Milner, and The Whip by Henry Hamilton and Cecil Raleigh. An introduction precedes the  collection, providing the information necessary to understand and  contextualize the genre and the plays as both written and performance  texts, and within the time period of their original productions, as well  as within the larger histories of theatre and equestrian  entertainments. Additional related plays are identified, excerpted, and  explored, providing readers with a wide range of examples to better  understand the development and significance of this unique form of  popular theatre. Also identified and explored are significant  contributions made to stage technology and design by the patented stage  machinery designed for the production of the mechanized form of  equestrian drama, which became popular in the late nineteenth century.

Equestrian Drama is suitable for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students in  theatre history, dramatic literature, performance studies, and equine  studies.
