Stephanie:

Though not immediately relevant to your friend's specific question, you
might send her/him to "A Legal Dodge in the Business Practices of the
Original Globe and Drury Lane Theatres", an article of mine in Theatre
Notebook, volume 51, number 2, pages 72-75 (1997). From your friend's
question, this article/note may be of some use.

Regards,
Brian Jay Corrigan

The documents from the Ostler-Heminges lawsuit of 1615 were published by
Wallace in a volume by the University of Kansas Press called *Advance
Sheets from Shakespeare, the Globe, and Blackfriars* (1909), and also in
*Shakespeare Jahrbuch* 46 (1910), p.235.  Relevant excerpts are in E. K.
Chambers' *William Shakespeare: A Study of the Facts and Problems*, vol.
II, pp.58ff.
