Why wernt women allowed to play the parts in William shakespeares plays?
Most of his plays...at least in his later years were performed in the Globe Theatre in London. A purpose built stage that featured trap doors, and suspension apparatus to allo…w performers to more accurately represent demons, and angels, which were ubiquitous in most plays of the time. However, an exact answer is impossible since most of his works were written, and were performed by many troops all around Britain For many years. It would have been much like the life of musicians, and stage actors today.
No, women were not on his plays.
Because the customs and traditions at the time didn't allow for female actors.
boys although there are stories of real girl sneaking into the industry.
Females weren't allowed to be actresses in any plays at all in Shakespeare's day. People thought it was indecent and improper for a woman to parade about on a stage showin…g herself off to any men who might happen to be there. It was as shocking as it would be for North Americans to see a twelve-year-old striptease artist. In fact, a French acting company with females in the cast (the French were OK with this idea) played in England in Shakespeare's day and were booed off the stage. The English would not allow females on stage until 1660 and even then it was considered to be an improper job for a well-bred woman well into the twentieth century.
Men, typically younger men, played the parts of women in the time of Shakespeare.
good question. i lack knowledge to know though...
well because men found women incapable of doing eney thing and held our creativity back for it. It all comes down to men thinking their beater than everyone else
It is recorded that Shakespeare acted in the Ben Jonson plays Sejanus and Every Man in his Humour. It is not recorded what parts he played. He also acted in his own plays,… but we don't know which. Shakespeare began his career in the London theater as an actor. We can be reasonably certain of this because a critic of his first play, Robert Greene, wrote a highly unfavorable review in which he stated that it was presumptuous of a "mere actor" to write a play. Shakespeare's name appears in the cast lists of the Chamberlain's Men acting company ones.
From the late 1500's it was the globe theatre
There are no records of William Shakespeare appearing in any productions
William Shakespeare was the playwright who wrote several dozen plays, many of which are still in production around the world today. While he authored many plays, he did not ap…pear as a character in any of them. Therefore, no one performs as William Shakespeare in any play written by him.
Inexperienced or young male actors.
Not because they were thought of not worthy to be on stage and they were told to stay at home and do the cooking and cleaning all day and not go out and have fun. That is a to…tally fictitious image of the attitude toward women in the Elizabethan age. It was perfectly acceptable for women to go out and have fun, which they did. They also sometimes had jobs because how else were you supposed to live if you were a widow? Those who did stay and keep a house had a major job on their hands. Up until about a hundred years ago, cooking and cleaning was a difficult full-time job which required a lot of skill and expertise to do. For a house of any size, it was a job beyond the capacity of one person, which meant hiring and organizing help. The reason women weren't allowed on stage was that it was not thought to be decent. It is difficult to explain that in terms comprehensible to North Americans and Europeans. If you are female, how would you feel about going around town doing your daily routine bare chested? How would people feel about a woman who did? Wouldn't she risk being arrested for indecent exposure? This is how Elizabethans in England felt about women getting up on stage and performing. They were shocked and outraged, not because they felt the women should be in the kitchen, but because no decent woman would display herself like that to any man who wanted to stare at her. Using the vernacular of nowadays, they would think it was "gross" or "creepy". In France, where they were actually much more controlling of the lives of their women (travellers from the continent to England were astonished at how freely women went about their business there), actresses were perfectly normal and acceptable. A French acting troupe toured England but were booed because one of them was female. For one reason or other, this attitude changed within a hundred years of Shakespeare's birth. After the Restoration, English audiences were prepared to accept actresses (but for hundreds of years would be convinced that any woman who would appear on stage must be of lax morality).
