Bartholomew Fayre: A Comedy is a comedy in five acts by Ben Jonson, the last composed of his four great comedies. It was first staged on 31 October 1614 at the Hope Theatre by the Lady Elizabeth's Men. Written four years after The Alchemist, five after Epicœne, or the Silent Woman, and nine after Volpone, it is in some respects the most experimental of these plays.
The play proper begins with a proctor and amateur dramatist Littlewit and his friends, Quarlous and Winwife; they are plotting how to win Dame Purecraft (a widow, and Littlewit's mother-in-law) from Zeal-of-the-Land Busy, a canting, hypocritical Puritan.
This edition has been formatted for your reader, with an active table of contents.  The play has also been annotated, with additional information about the work itself and also Ben Jonson, including an overview, background, synopsis, analysis, stage history, biographical and bibliographical information.
