Costumes, props, sets in the Elizabethan theatre
Transcript of Costumes, props, sets in the Elizabethan theatre
White was associated with purity
Yellow was associated with lovers Men Since woman weren't allowed to be in plays, boys would play the character of a woman The make-up they wore was lead based and highly poisonous! The young boy actors were therefore very unhealthy, had unpleasant facial skin diseases and a high proportion actually died of poisoning. Stage was known as a 3 quarter round and was a platform surrounded on sides by audience. More than 3000 people would go to see a play, and if the audience did not like it then they would throw apples at them sold by the "Apple wives" Like costumes, props were important assets for the theater companies, most of the props that the companies possessed were small, portable items.
Pigs or sheep's blood was sometimes used to add glory realism to scenes of violent deaths.
It was also bad luck to use props from the play Mecbeth in other plays. Works Cited L.K., Alchin.
