3 December, 1595 - Barnardo and Philametta

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

Henslowe writes: ye 3 of desembȝ  1595 ... R at barnardo ... vijs 

In modern English: 3rd December, 1595  ... Received at Barnardo ... 7 shillings

Today, the Admiral's Men revived Barnardo and Philametta, a lost play on an unknown subject; you can read more about it in the entry for 30 October.

Barnardo and Philametta continues to receive catastrophically awful box office. One cannot help suspect that it will not remain long in the repertory.
