Storyboard Text

  • Drama first began in church.
  • The first production was for easter. At first the church was the 'theatre' and the plays were known as Liturgical plays.
  • They got more and more popular and it became entertainment instead of a church service. The clergy got unhappy and kicked them out because of the lack of latin and religious context.
  • Mystery plays began. Mystery plays were trade and craft plays which often used scenes from the bible like Noah's ark and the crusifixion and the last supper.
  • The amateur actors still got paid and they had to start performing at 5 am otherwise they were fined six shillings and eight pence.
  • Soon comic characters and villainous actors were put in to the plays and the church authorities got angry. The plays were then called Morality plays which concerned themselves with the lives of ordinary people.
