A New Wonder, A Woman Never Vext was not entered on the Stationers’ Register until 1631. If the Master of the Revels issued a licence for stage production, it has not survived; nor has any record of a performance. Revisions could have been made to the play until 1631, but most of the writing must have been finished before Rowley’s death early in 1626. I have found no evidence of major interpolation in the text; on the contrary, one of the striking aspects of the play is its unity. 1
