RSC Classics - a series of rarely performed plays from the 16th and 17th centuries, published alongside their resurrection by the RSC in Stratford and the West End in 2002/03.

John Fletcher's play The Island Princess is a lyrical and poetic Discovery Play, first performed c.1621.

Five men compete for the hand of Princess Quisara on the Indonesian island of Tidore. She vows to marry the man who can free her imprisoned brother. But she soon faces both a conflict of faith and a moral dilemma as her idealism and beliefs are challenged beyond her expectations.

This edition of The Island Princess is edited with an introduction by Gordon McMullan and preface by Gregory Doran.

The plays in the Nick Hern Books RSC Classics series reflect the diversity of styles, themes and subjects of the Elizabethan and Jacobean stage, and include a 'new' addition to the Shakespeare canon.
