It would be rather difficult for any Shakespeare plays to be performed
anywhere in the first half of the sixteenth century, I should think, but
for all surviving records of Cambridge entertainment you will want to
consult Alan Nelson, ed., *Records of Early English Drama: Cambridge*, 2
vols., Toronto: U of Toronto P, 1989.  The other REED collections will
give you what records of traveling players survive for those regions.
Also helpful is Sally-Beth MacLean and Scott McMillin's _The Queen's Men
and their Plays_, Cambridge: Cambridge UP, 1998, which will lead you to
numerous other studies on traveling players.

Of course, I meant the early sixteen hundreds. Oops!
