His primary sources include promptbooks and groundplans, letters, diaries and reviews. He approaches the play from four different angles: he examines the texts used in all major productions, and makes valuable deductions about the taste and sensibility of an age from cuts, alterations, additions and redistribution of parts. He explains in detail the staging of the play at various points in time, and demonstrates how sets and costumes, bits of business, handling of crowd scenes and lighting affected its business.

He reconstructs performances of the four main roles by the greater and lesser lights of each period. Finally, he comments on the way in which the theories of critics and, in modern times, directors ideas have influenced understanding of the play.
