PLEASE LET THIS BE REAL

@thefingerfuckingfemalefury @cblgblog @chiribomb

Part of me thinks “Surely this isn’t true” but another part of me is like “This is not the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard”

This is 100% true. Allen v. Burbage (1602) and its outcome has been well documented. Burbage found a loophole in the lease of Allen’s land that said that, while Allen had the right to no longer lease his land to the theatre troupe, the theatre troupe had ownership of the structure (the theatre). This new document discovery just confirms that Shakespeare was absolutely irrefutably involved, as previous documents about the court case didn’t name him. But we’ve always known about this (his theatre company while he was part of it, etc.).
