Theatre, when Shakespeare was alive, was different to now. Back then women
weren't allowed to act in plays; instead men played the roles of women. Theatre productions were performed in the day since
they didn't have lights in the 1500s. A soliloquy is an acting technique where the actor talks to himself to express his thoughts.
The people that went to the theatre in the early days were out of work and living in the street. Later on though theatre became
something that the public went to. Although royalty and nobles could see plays in public theatres they prefer that the play
was performed at their homes in private.
