Theatrical Provenance

Edward White did not name the agent from whom he acquired "Robin Hood and Little John," which is regrettable because two of the other plays registered by White on 14 May were performed by the Queen's men (Friar Bacon and Friar Bungay and King Leir). Wiggins, Catalogue #870) notes that company connection in the discussion of yet another of White's registrations (David and Bethsaba), and he extends the attribution in the entry for "Robin Hood and Little John" (#868), though "tentatively."
Theater historians do not know whether the Queen's men had a London performance venue in 1594, but provincial records show that they performed at numerous sites around the country (see McMillin and MacLean, Appendix A, p. 184)
