On May 6, 1953, the Privy Council licensed the Lord Strange’s Men to continue their plays outside of London. Of the leading players in Lord Strange’s company, Thomas Pope, Augustine Phillips, John Hemings, William Kemp, and George Bryan would later be named, along with Richard Burbage, William Shakespeare, and Richard Cowley as the payees for performances at court by the Lord Chamberlain’s/King’s Men between 1594 and 1604. This book focuses on the plays and performances of Lord Strange’s Men, and aims to reexamine and investigate whether there is a direct association between Shakespeare and Lord Strange’s Men. It also attempts to provide the fullest possible account of Shakespeare’s fellows at an earlier stage in their career, since that earlier fellowship had a profound influence on Shakespeare’s own career.
