Theatrical Provenance

The theatrical provenance of "French Doctor" is complicated by the fact that Henslowe did not mark the play "ne" at its debut in his records for the autumn of 1594. Theater historians consequently assume that the play was in revival. But where had it been when new, and with which company?
