Subject: Bryson Acting Reference
On page 81 of his new Shakespeare biography, Bill Bryson writes that
Shakespeare "was listed as an actor on documents in 1592, 1598, 1603 and
1608." Would anyone happen to know what document he is referring to from
1608? The only one I know of is the deed transferring the Globe from
John Collett to John Bodley, but it doesn't refer to WS as an actor.
