Description:Shakespeare collaborates on writing a play.

Towards the end of his career in London Shakespeare collaborated with the younger playwright, John Fletcher in the writing of Henry VIII in 1612, and then on The Two Noble Kinsmen, which was probably first performed in 1613. The play did not appear in print until 1634, having been omitted from the 'First Folio'. The title page of this 'quarto' edition advertises that the play had been successfully performed by Shakespeare's company, the King's Men at the indoor Blackfriars' theatre.

Full title: John Fletcher and William Shakespeare, The Two Noble Kinsmen. Presented at the Blackfriers by the Kings Majesties servants, Written by Mr John Fletcher and Mr William Shakespeare gent. London, by Thomas Cotes for John Waterson, 1634.
