Q: Elizabethean Theatre

When you think Elizabethean thetre, you think Shakespeare. But, who else was there? - Jinx :confused:

Christopher Marlowe, for one.

Ben Jonson, for another.

Strangely enough, there is no clear evidence that Elizabeth herself ever worked in the theatre.

Robert Greene

John Lyly

Thomas Kyd

You mean besides the grafitti on the ancient popcorn stand ( last remain ing piece of the Globe Theatre) that reads–

Elizabeth obviously worked Concessions, before becoming an Usherette, then Queen.

As is usual.


John Webster was beginning his rise to prominence as Elizabeth’s reign came to an end. Amongst other plays, he wrote The Duchess of Malfi.

Nell Gwynn was quite disappointed when things didn’t fall out exactly this way. :wink:
