Dec 28,Sat play, by Lord Admiral’s Men; payees included Edward Alleyn. also Dec 28: play, by Lord Chamberlain’s Men. Payees for the two plays by the Lord Chamberlain’s Men: William Kemp, William Shakespeare, and Richard Burbage, ‘servants to the Lord Chamberlain’.T [This is the only mention of Shakespeare in these Elizabethan accounts]. Also Dec 28: A company of actors played a ‘Comedy of Errors’ at Gray’s Inn at night, as part of the Gray’s Inn Revels: A second ‘Grand Night’, with many lords and ladies present. There was ‘such a disordered tumult and crowd upon the stage’ that an ‘ambassador’ from the Inner Temple left early with other ‘Templarians’, the only ‘sports’ offered were ‘dancing and revelling with gentlewomen; and after such sports a Comedy of Errors (like to Plautus his Menaechmus) was played by the players. So the night...was ever afterwards called the Night of Errors’. The players were ‘a company of base and common fellows’. How was "Shakespeare" spelled in the original? Just curious. 3 T A A A A A A A A A A A T 157 www.Light-of-Truth.com 287 <-- 1 8 8 1 1 O 1 1 8 8 1 --> Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
