William Shakespeare was a minor shareholder in The Globe Theatre. He, as well as the other owners, was a member of the theatre company that played there, The Lord Chamberlain's Men later called the King's Men. Since Shakespeare was the company playwright, all of his plays were played by that company and often at that theatre (but not always)
