Subject: 15.0508 The Wedding Legend for MND
Comment:        Re: SHK 15.0508 The Wedding Legend for MND

In 1964, Peter Alexander in his Shakespeare (The Home University of
Modern Knowledge) Oxford UP, 1964, pp. 133-35, surmises that MND was
performed for the wedding of Elizabeth Cary to Thomas Berkeley, 19
February 1596, with the Queen present. I get this information from D.
Allen Carroll and Gary Jay Williams's A Midsummer Night's Dream: An
Annotated Bibliography (Garland Shakespeare Bibliographies).
