ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the evidences on the formation and establishment of drama and entertainment in Peebles, Scotland in the 15th and 16th centuries. It states that folk plays and activities are some of the main components of medieval drama in Scotland, which were controlled over by a Lord of Misrule or an officer. It says that entertainment in Peebles may have taken place on the occasion of royal visits, and the burgh has used buckram as a material used for dramatic performances. It explores two literary productions which are connected with the history of drama in Peebles in the 15th century, such as the "Peblis to the Play." It also discusses the association of popular culture and the municipal control over festivity in the burgh's dramas and entertainment.
