Category:Robert Tailor

Robert Tailor ("Robin") is known in current documents as an adult player who took minor roles. He belonged to the Admiral's men, c. 1597-1601, exclusively (at present) by his name in plots for "2 Fortune's Tennis" and the Admiral's revival of The Battle of Alcazar. Greg lends authority to the identification of the author of The Hog hath Lost his Pearl (1614) as this Robert Tailor by mentioning the play at all in conjunction with Tailor's biography (p. 65).
