Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 3, No. 98. Sunday, 3 May 1992.

Subject: 	Spurious works!
 
I have here a book entitled THE SHAKESPEARE APOCRYPHA, being a collection
of fourteen plays which have been ascribed to Shakespeare. [Spurious and
doubtfull works.] ed., with introduction, notes and bibliography, by
C.F. Tucker Brooke. Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1918.
 
Arden of Feversham
Locrine
Edward III
Mucedorus
Sir John Oldcastle
Thomas, lord Cromwell
The London prodigal
The Puritan
A Yorkshire tragedy
The Merry Devil of Edmonton
Fair Em
The Two Noble Kinsmen
The Birth of Merlin
Sir Thomas More.
 
I know at least two of them have been produced.
 
My questions are:
 
1) Has anyone ever seen any of these plays produced (or been involved in pro-
ducing them?
 
2) Does anyone have any thoughts on these as viable, stageable works?
