Because of their social class and economic history, players who were born into guild families or who took up guild membership would have perceived others in their trade as fellows, inviting friendships across company lines, the union of families through marriage, and executorial care in the disposition of worldly goods. It suggests a fortuitous match of marketing and talent: the children's companies wanted satires; Marston and Jonson could provide them. For all his hauteur, however, what Jonson actually did next was routine commercial work: he earned 40s. In comparison, the alleged sparring between Cynthia's Revels and What You Will is entirely dependent on conjectural dates for the respective stage runs. Jonson's life was full of drama. Philip Henslowe, who built the Fortune with Edward Alleyn in 1600, leased the Rose to Pembroke's Men in October 1600 and to Worcester's Men in 1602±3, serving the latter company as he continued to serve the Admiral's Men by authorizing their purchase of playbooks and apparel. First, the adaptation of the story of Guy of Warwick for the stage permits insights into the repertorial strategies employed by dramatists and theatre companies as they strove to satisfy audience demand.
McMillin and MacLean, pointing out the emphasis on historical subjects in the repertory of the Queen's Men, lead me to conjecture that other such plays in the possession of the company were also played at the Swan. Here, in citing original ix x Playing Companies and Commerce in Shakespeare's Time documents, I expand scribal contractions in italics unless I am citing a transcription already in print.

Presumably it was also revised with the tour of 1603±4 in mind. Further, the Stage Quarrel puts great emphasis on the personal barbs exchanged by Jonson, Marston, and Dekker; however, political satire was potentially the more serious threat to company commerce.

The Privy Council order in June 1600 might have given them additional incentive to publicize their business by way of the title pages of plays in print. One set of records concerning the Admiral's Men in performance with other groups of players serves as illustration: Ipswich, 7 August 1592, with Derby's Men; York, April 1593, with Morley's players; Newcastle, May 1593, with Morley's players; Shrewsbury, sometime after 24 July 1593, with Strange's Men; and Bath, 1593±4, with Lord Norris's players.

As in the entry for 3 November 1600, Travice sometimes named the playhouse that Cavendish attended: Paul's in October 1601, June 1602, and November 1602; Blackfriars in October and November 1601.
Phillips left £10 to his sister, Elizabeth Gough, whose marriage to Robert Gough was entered in the parish register of St. Perhaps because the Burbages stood to make money from both, the pairing of the Theatre and Curtain has not produced narratives of rival playhouses as have the Rose and Globe.

Much old scholarship on players implies that changes in af®liation were accompanied by hard feelings, an attitude consistent with an interpretation of commerce among the playing companies as a rivalry based on feuds. If Histrio-Mastix was as important to the War of the Theatres as theatre historians have assumed, it was most marketable in 1599±1600, when Jonson ridiculed it through Clove's fustian-speak; and it was most marketable with the name of its dramatist, company owners, and playhouse prominently displayed on the title page of the quarto.
It is hard to imagine the Admiral's Men insisting to Wilson that he work with Drayton, Hathaway, and Munday; it is more plausible that the men, all of whom had supplied plays to the Admiral's Men before, made up their own teams. Suggesting the guild as a model of economic cooperation, Knutson considers the networks of fellowship among players, the marketing strategies of the repertory, and company relationships with playwrights and members of the book trade.

Tucca is suggesting that Poetaster and Satiromastix are parts one and two of a serial drama in which arraignments and untrussings become the centerpiece of a theatrical game that guarantees revenue at the participating playhouses.
