The commentary on "Henslowe's Diary" by Walter Wilson Greg, attempts to shed some light on the missing play.

Philip Henslowe (c. 1550 – 6 January 1616) was an Elizabethan theatrical entrepreneur and impresario. Henslowe's modern reputation rests on the survival of "Henslowe's Diary", a primary source for information about the theatrical world of Renaissance London. The diary makes a reference to a play about the Earl of Chester: a play which has since been "lost".
