    Abstract:
    In this paper I argue that the characters of Lance and his dog Crab were a late addition to Shakespeare’s ‘The Two Gentlemen of Verona’, and are partly a satire on the Isle of Dogs affair. If this correct, the play as we now have it was probably first performed in late 1597 or early 1598.
