Formation of the Chamberlain's Men
Julian Glover and Adrian Schiller in
"King Lear"In May, Shakespeare and Richard Burbage join a new company, formed by Lord Chamberlain Hunsdon. This new company, formed with many players William has worked with before, has strong connections with Warwickshire. Shakespeare will remain with this company for the rest of his life, doubtless enjoying being able to use much of the rich language of his Warwickshire youth and have it sound authentic in the delivery of players raised with the same language and accents.
Together with Edward Alleyn's The Admiral's Men, who performed Christopher Marlowe's plays, the companies would dominate London theatre.
