26 November, 1595 - Longshanks

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

Today, the Admiral's Men returned to Longshanks, their play about King Edward I of England; you can read more about it in the entry for 29 August.

The company continues with their practice of performing Longshanks approximately once every three weeks. However, the box office has suddenly declined to well below the average for the Rose. The audience may be wearying of it.
