On the theme of locally relevant plays of the period, there are a couple of others you may know. A Christian Turn’d Turk by Robert Daborne, a tragedy, printed in 1612. This has some points of comparison with The Jew of Malta – set in the Mediterranean with battles between Christians and Turks (Muslims), this one with a pirate from Faversham as main protagonist. The other is A Shoemaker, A Gentleman, a tragi-comedy by William Rowley, written about 1618, about two Christian noblemen (Crispin and Crispianus, later made saints) in flight from Roman governors in Canterbury – they hide out in Faversham (again!).
