Will somebody help them, please?” – David Ives nb I don’t write reviews because I’m usually too catty right out of a performance. ‘What. What. What […]

I don’t react well to the names some people have called Philip Henslowe. I don’t know Phil, obviously, and I suspect that I wouldn’t have even if we’d been neighbours. (Rumour has it my English ancestors were more of the horse-thieving than armigerous variety.) So why do I bristle when people brush him off as […]

I’ve seen in person the copies held by the Folger Shakespeare Library, the National Library of Scotland, the British Library, the Houghton Library […]

So I leave this as a tantalizing tidbit […]
