Henslowe's Diary ... as a Blog!

This site preserves a 5-year project to present in blog format the day-by-day records of an Elizabethan theatre. From 2016 to 2021, I posted the daily entries from Philip Henslowe's lists of performances at the Rose playhouse, as recorded in his so-called 'Diary', from 1592 to 1597. The project introduced readers to dozens of plays, some of which are still performed today, some of which have been forgotten, and some of which are lost. 

The site now remains as a record of the blog, and I hope it will be useful for researchers who are studying these plays or the Diary. However, please note that the site is not peer-reviewed and may contain errors; it should be treated as a starting point for research, not as an end point. I will periodically update or correct the entries if I find new information.

Other information can be found in the links on the right.

What follows is an alphabetical list of the first entries on each play mentioned in the Diary. I encourage use of the 'Further Reading' sections of each entry for the most accurate information.

Extant plays

Lost plays
