Today was a fine and fun day.  Here is the home work and events of the day.

The globe theater:

• A central role

• A troop was unable to pay their lease so they moved across the river

• People had so much fun

• Then the theater burned down by a cannon

• Then it was rebuilt later

• Plays during this time were simple and not well organized

• Huge props

• This method caused people to steal their plays
