AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In 1597 Queen Elizabeth I signed a Royal warrant giving theatre managers Henry Evans, Nathaniel Giles and their deputy, James Robinson authority to 'impress' boys to be actors in the second Blackfriars Theatre. In reality it was kidnapping against which there were no laws in Elizabethan England. As a result two of the greatest boy players of the age, Nathan Field and Salomon Pavy suffered 'impressment'. The setting up of the new Blackfriars indoor theatre and its fluctuating fortunes ushers a cavalcade of characters into the former Dominican Priory.'
