Back on 27th December

Henslowe's Diary ... as a Blog! is now on hiatus and will be back on 27th December.

This blog attempts to capture the day-by-day life of an Elizabethan theatre by recounting the daily performances at the Rose playhouse by Lord Strange's Men, as recorded in Philip Henslowe's diary. The London theatres were closed on 23 June, 1592 to prevent the spread of plague, and they did not re-open until December of that year. While the Rose was shut, Strange's Men toured their plays around the towns of England.

When we return in December, the daily posts will be back and there will be new plays to discover alongside the old stalwarts. Thank you for reading, and see you then!
