I don't wish to point out the obvious, but is Jack Heller aware that the 
May 1606 act of Parliament to "Restrain the Abuses of Players" would 
have made any scenes of baptisms/christenings illegal?

Hen VIII V.v seems obvious.

Most of the replies I have had so far have suggested HENRY VIII. What I 
have found is that there is always a play I haven't read lately. The 
last time I read HENRY VIII must be six years ago, when I was working on 
Foxe and the history plays. I thank the listmembers for their replies so 
far, and I would welcome further suggestions sent offlist.

Cheers,
Jack Heller
