theatres in their jurisdiction. The theatres outside the jurisdiction of London were not immune from interference, for they might be shut up by order of the privy Council for meddling in politics or for various other offenses, or they might be closed in time of plague lest they spread infection. During plague times the actors usually went on tour and played the provinces wherever they could find an audience. Particularly frightening were the plagues of 1592-1594 and 1613, when the theatres closed and the players, like many other Londoners, had to take to the country.
Though players had a low social status, they enjoyed great popularity and one of the favorite forms of entertainment at Court was the performance of plays. To be commanded to perform at Court conferred great prestige upon a company of players, and when plays were published that fact was frequently noted. Many of Shakespeare's plays were performed before the sovereign and Shakespeare himself undoubtedly acted in some of these plays.

to be confusing is Hazelton Spencer, The Art and Life o f William Shakespeare (New York, 1940), which, like Sanders' handbook, contains a brief annotated list of
useful books on various aspects of the subject. The most detailed and scholarly work providing complete
