To illustrate the dangers of that practice I turn, in the second half of this essay, to an episode which most accounts have misrepresented: the performance of a play at the Globe Theatre on 7 February 1601, the eve of the earl of Essex’s rising. Like many other events that have been related to Shakespeare’s life, it shows how far the evidence has to be strained before even the most basic steps towards the writing of Shakespearian biography can be taken. On the afternoon of Saturday 7 February a group of apparently eleven or so followers of the earl of Essex, having dined at ‘one Gunter’s house over against Temple gate’, crossed the Thames to watch a play performed by the Lord Chamberlain’s men (the company to which Shakespeare belonged) at the Globe.
47 The atmosphere of subversion has been thickened by the critical habit of conﬂating the Globe performance with the performances to which Queen Elizabeth referred in her conversation with the antiquary William Lambarde in August 1601. 49 If his plays were customarily performed in open streets and houses, our understanding of the conditions of Shakespearian performance is in need of some amendment. 50 Even if they were of Shakespeare’s play, Stephen Orgel’s claim that they ‘transformed . . Richard II into a very dangerous piece of civic pageantry’51 is without foundation.
