One of my best pieces was "Romeo and Juliet" I borrowed this idea from something I read called " The Tragical History of Romeus and Juliet."

No females acting during this time period because they weren't educated so they were unable to read the lines and know what to do. Girls would spend there days at home with there mothers. The theatre was burnt down in 1613, 3 years before William died.

12: The Renaissance influenced literature and history. Throughout the Renaissance time period the most famous artist and writers were born, which are still very famous today. During the Renaissance there was so much to write about because everyone experienced so much and even though only the rich were educated the most, the rich were the ones who had the most creative ideas to write about. The Renaissance created such a huge history because it was so life changing in that time period. Even though people don't still live the same way they did during the Renaissance, it was a great way to live because the best art work has come out of it.
