This chapter discusses the list of titles of Rose plays in Philip Henslowe’s records that apparently got lost and the list of titles of lost non-Rose plays. It also presents the grounds for attributing these lost plays to Lord Strange’s Men. The chapter begins with Fair Em, the one play with an unambiguous title-page attribution to Lord Strange’s Men. This is followed by Titus Andronicus, the only play besides Fair Em with an apparent title-page attribution to Lord Strange’s Men. The other plays for which there is some evidence for attribution to Lord Strange’s Men are 2 and 3 Henry VI, Richard III, and the manuscripts of John a Kent and John a Cumber and Sir Thomas More. The chapter then discusses the lost Rose plays and other candidates for attribution to Lord Strange’s Men.

Keywords:   Rose plays, Philip Henslowe, Lord Strange’s Men, Fair Em, Titus Andronicus, Henry VI, Richard III, John a Kent, John a Cumber, Sir Thomas More
