It may not be precisely what you're looking for, but I found Alan 
Dessen's comparison (_Rescripting Shakespeare_, 2002, pp. 227-230) of 
the dramaturgical implications of "silence" in the two trials very 
thought provoking.

Regards,
Anna

Matthew Gibson asks about storage facilities for props and costumes.

John Chamberlain wrote in a letter to Dudley Carleton on 15 Dec 1621 'On 
Sunday night [i.e. 9 Dec], here was a great fire at the Fortune in 
Golden Lane, the fairest playhouse in this town. It was quite burned 
down in two hours, and all their apparel and playbooks lost, whereby 
those poor companions are quite undone.'

Evidently at least one playhouse had enough space to store scripts and 
costumes -- unfortunately for posterity.
