Summary Disguise devices figure in many early modern English plays and an examination of them clearly affords an important reflection on the growth of early theatre as well as on important aspects of the developing nation. In this study, Hyland examines various conceptual and practical issues that provide a background to theatrical disguise and goes on to consider a range of plays under three broad headings: moral issues, social issues, and aesthetic issues
