Shakespeare and the Theatre by Jane Shuter

Did you know that the only known purpose-built theatres in Shakespeare's England were in London and Bristol? Or that only boys and men could become actors? This fascinating book outlines the world of the theatre in which William Shakespeare wrote and did business, from outdoor and indoor theatres and the life of an actor and touring, to how plays were written, funded, and staged.
