Why wernt women allowed to play the parts in William shakespeares plays?
Nobody knows exactly when any of Shakespeare's plays were written, so it is impossible to say which was the first, or the eleventh, or the twenty-fifth. There are a bunch of l…ists where scholars have tried assigning ranges of possible dates to the plays, which contain entries like this: Romeo and Juliet (1594-1596), The Merchant of Venice (1594-1596), A Midsummer Night's Dream (1595-1596). This means that those three plays could have been written in any order.
Shakespeare collaborated with other playwrights much less than most of his contemporaries, but some of his plays are clearly collaborations. The Two Noble Kinsmen is credited …to Shakespeare and John Fletcher, and it is thought that these two collaborated on a number of Shakespeare's later plays, such as Henry VIII, Cardenio, and Pericles. It is thought that Thomas Middleton wrote the scenes in Macbeth containing the character Hecate, in order to tart the play up as a musical. Timon of Athens is also thought to be a late collaboration. At the other end of the spectrum, it is believed that other authors helped Shakespeare at the start of his career. In particular it is thought that George Peele may have written some of Titus Andronicus. It was common for inexperienced playwrights to be paired with veterans who would act as their mentors. That was probably what happened with Shakespeare and Fletcher. It is plausible that, when Shakespeare was a new playwright, he was paired with experienced dramatists as their protege while he learned he ropes.
Shakespeare is most famous for the tragedies Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra; the comedies A Midsummer Night's Dr…eam, The Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night, As You Like It, The Tempest, Much Ado About Nothing and The Merchant of Venice and the History Plays Henry V and Richard III

Men, typically younger men, played the parts of women in the time of Shakespeare.
Pianos didn't exist back then; the first piano was built around hundred years after his time.
During Shakespeare's lifetime, his plays were performed: 1. In large, open-air theatres such as the Rose, the Theatre, the Globe, the Curtain, and Newington Butts. 2. In indoo…r theatres, like the Blackfriars. 3. At court. 4. At people's private houses. 5. At large halls like the hall of the Middle Temple in the Inns of Court. (Law school) 6. In innyards converted into theatres. 7. Once, that we know of, on board a ship.
Unfortunately we cannot really be certain which of his plays was the last one he wrote, or which was the last one to be performed. We can say for sure that based on the inform…ation we have, The Two Noble Kinsmen was the last to be published, in 1634, eleven years after the others. This might have been the last play which Shakespeare wrote unless it was the now lost Cardenio. Both were, scholars think (well Kinsmen says so on the title page) collaborations with Fletcher, and written no later than 1613. The Tempest (written probably around 1611 or so, due to the topical subject matter) is thought to be the last play he wrote without help from anyone else.
From the late 1500's it was the globe theatre
William Shakespeare is not known to have played an instrument.
His playing company, The Lord Chamberlain's Men, later The King's Men.
Shakespeare wrote all of his plays for his audience. In most cases this meant everybody, from the workers and apprentices who bought penny tickets and went to see the blood an…d to hear the dirty jokes, to middle-class people who liked the romance, to sophisticated types who liked the complicated wordplay and social comment. They were written for this broad audience because in this way you not only could sell all kinds of different people tickets to the play, but you could use the same play over and over at the public playhouses, at private performances or at court. One of Shakespeare's plays that does not seem to have been written for as broad an audience is Love's Labour's Lost. It is full of arcane wordplay, satire and classical allusions. It was probably written for a court event.
Males played female parts in Shakespeare. This was not because women were not allowed to do anything in that time but cook clean and have children, since they had a much more …varied scope than that. It was because it was considered to be indecent for women to be seen performing on stage. It was as indecent to them as showing up for a funeral in the nude would be to us.
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
Is this a question? William Shakespeare did write his plays.
There is no general consensus on which of Shakesepeare's plays was first. Many people think it was The Comedy of Errors because it has a borrowed classical structure and theme…. Some think that it was Love's Labour's Lost because it has an unnecessarily duplicated structure (four identical men and four identical women). Some think it may be The Two Gentlemen of Verona because there are a number of awkward scenes, especially the last one, and because when there are more than two people on stage, the third one tends to fall silent. Some think it may be Titus Andronicus, which has similar problems, as well as over-the-top violence and the fact that it was one of the first plays to be published, in 1594. Also published in 1594 was Henry VI Part II. Henry VI Part III was referred to by Robert Greene in 1592. Henslowe records a play called "Harey vj" in 1591 which might have been one of the Shakespeare plays. Titus does not show up in Henslowe's records until several years later. People who are impressed with actual dated records tend to go for the Henry VI plays. Others feel that the other candidates do not show as deft a command of the playwright's art and are probably earlier. The fact that we have dated records of the Henry plays, according to them, is just the luck of the draw.
