Shakespeare's plays were very symbolical and were usually preformed in latin. No. Reread the article. In his early plays the protagonist would usually have the characteristics of a Godly person. He had four types of plays: Comedy, tragedy, history, and poetry; most were comedies.

What did a production of a Shakespeare play look like in 1600?


Kelsey Hinrichs-
Shakespeare's plays were split into 4 different parts; Comedy (Midsummer Night's Dream), tragedy(Romeo and Juliet), history(King John), and poetry(Venus and Adonis).

Shakespeare's plays in the 1600 were performed in large open areas and outside when it was summer time. Women did not perform in his plays. When a women role was there usally young boys took the women parts. Most of the time they actors got there lines are before the performance and wouldn't know the plot till it was happening. (Photo: This would be a typical set-up for one of Shakespeare's plays in the summer time.)

Libby:::
his 37 plays where divided into the genres of tragedy, history, and comedy. They were translated into basically every language and are preformed all around the world.
they looked very oldern time-ish and old fashoned. they were not popular for a while until about 1623 and modern critisism has labeled them as problem plays.
