Focusing on an often neglected period in Elizabethan theater studies, the 1580s and 1590s, this study considers the plausibility of various biographers' claims about Shakespeare's involvement with different London acting companies. Schoone-Jongen does not make a case for one particular claim but considers eleven different acting companies, devoting six total chapters to their activities, and a summary and critique of the arguments for Shakespeare's involvement in them.
