19:30 Evening: When You See Me, You Know Me (1604) - Samuel Rowley



14:30 Afternoon: The Whore of Babylon (1606)  - Thomas Dekker

This event is an opportunity to read, in close juxtaposition, the surviving repertory of plays written for the Admiral's Men (later Prince Henry's Men) from the company's inception in 1594 until 1606. They were the principal commercial competitors to Shakespeare's company, and the plays we shall read, in all genres, represent the alternative choices available to London theatregoers in the period. The readings will be more or less in chronological order, and you can find the schedule below and on the REP website. Attendance is free for REP members; there is a small charge for non-members.


If you would like to attend as either a reader or a listener, you can find the schedule and all information here:
