Subject:        Q: The Parts Shakespeare Played
 
I have spent the evening trying to find out what we know, or think we know,
about the parts Shakespeare took in the plays he wrote.  I know I have seen
references to this subject in the past (not on the list) but cannot now find
them. Could any well-meaning scholars please let me know what they know on this
subject.
 
I know he was probably the Ghost in +Ham+ and that he was probably Adam in
+AYL+, but I am sure I have read, somewhere, he did more.
 
Any help will be appreciated.  Please reply to me, and +not+ to the list.
 
Thanks!
William
