Subject:    Trial Scenes

I am interested in any recent criticism regarding the trial scenes in 
Winter's Tale and Henry VIII, and particularly any which focuses on the 
fact that these plays will at some point almost certainly have been in 
the King's Men's repertory at the same time and may have been perceived 
to "speak to" each other.

Also, and on a completely separate point, I wonder if there is any 
evidence of "storage" facilities for the theatre companies. Most 
scholarship points to fairly cramped quarters backstage at the public 
theatres; a glance at Henslowe's diary indicates holdings in props and 
costumes that would far exceed what could be stored in even the most 
generous of hypothetically projected "tiring houses."

I look forward to any responses.

Best regards,
Matthew Gibson
