In the same article, Gary Taylor, notes that a certain "William of
Stratford" attended the English Jesuit College in Rome in 1589.  No
reference is provided for this provocative detail and a quick survey of
Wells, Honan and Wilson provided no additional illumination.

Can anyone provide additional context?  Thanks to all.

Thanks for Al Magary for passing on Gary Taylor's article from The
Guardian, perhaps as an example of a perverse argument.  It starts out
as the usual anti-bardolatrist screed against "the theatre of the word",
denounces both globalization and government subsidy, and manages as an
aside to label classical theatre directors as gambling liars, before
deciding that Italians are entitled to a globe theatre, since "We owe it
to them".  I suppose the author thinks himself ironic, somehow.

Yours,
Sean Lawrence.
