Giles Allen's lawsuit against Peter Street, carpenter, provides evidence concerning the pulling down of the Theatre. Allen accuses Street of trespassing, trampling his plants, and stealing the Theatre. Street argues that he was acting as the servant of Cuthbert Burbage and therefore he should not be the target of the suit. The bill is mostly in Latin, but quotes in full the proposed extension of the lease made on 1 November 1585 by James Burbage which Allen refused to sign.
