28 January, 1594 - Buckingham

Here's what the Earl of Sussex's Men performed at the Rose playhouse on this day, 424 years ago...

Henslowe writes: R at buckengam the 27 of Jenewarye 1593 ... xviijs 

In modern English: Received at Buckingham, 28th January, 1594 ... 18 shillings

Edward Stafford, 3rd Duke of Buckingham,
one possible subject of this lost play
Today, Sussex's Men revived again their lost play Buckingham, which was probably a tragedy about one of the Dukes of Buckingham from English history; you can read more about it in the entry for 30 December, 1593.

The company has allowed a fortnight to pass without a performance of Buckingham, but this has had no effect on its unimpressive box office, producing an audience slightly smaller than last time.
