29 November, 1594 - A Knack to Know an Honest Man

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

In modern English: 29th November, 1594 ... Received at The Knack ... 20 shillings

Two  Young Venetian Men (anon., 1515)
Today, the Admiral's Men revived A Knack to Know an Honest Man, their comical moral romance set in Venice. You can read more about this play in the entry for 23rd October.

The company last performed A Knack to Know an Honest Man only a week ago, but it now seems to be plateauing at a rather unimpressive level.
