Subject:      Actor Doublings

I had a somewhat odd request for the group. Does anybody know of any literature 
on the topic of single Shakespearean actors that might have played multiple 
roles within the same play? 

Alternatively, are there any SHAKSPER participants with enough computer 
programming experience to assist me in writing software that could possibly 
figure out which roles in which plays were never on stage at the same time and, 
therefore, could have been played by the same actor?
