The residence of Lord Strange’s Men at the Rose (1592–1593) is the first recorded example of daily performance by a professional acting company in Elizabethan London. This chapter attempts to identify individual plays in the repertory and Philip Henslowe’s records of playhouse receipts of Lord Strange’s Men. Over their 134 days at the Rose, Lord Strange’s Men performed twenty-seven different plays. At their first seventeen performances as recorded by Henslowe, Lord Strange’s Men offered fifteen different plays, repeating only two of them a second time.
