This chapter shifts the focus of attention from England to Scotland, and onto the variously complex, subtle and strident engagements with social and religious issues undertaken in Sir David Lyndsay’s Satyre of the Thrie Estaitis. It suggests how the playwright and his actors’ conversation with their audiences sought to engage them intellectually and affectively with the matter of religious and social reform in the early years of Scottish reformation ferment, and devised a new form of drama in the process.

Keywords:   Sir David Lyndsay, A Satire of the Thrie Estates, Edinburgh, Cupar, Scottish Reformation
