John Fletcher 1579-1625
He collaborated with Francis Beaumont in the writing of some eight "comedy of manners" plays which were highly popular in their day. After Beaumont's death he also collaborated with other playwrights including Shakespeare, and wrote some plays alone, although today exact attribution of all the works with which he was connected is difficult. He is considered to have written The Faithful Shepherdess himself, and also Rule a Wife and Have a Wife, but generally his best known works were collaborative.
