The Architecture of Elizabethan Theatres - think of a public outdoor structure like the Coliseum or a small rugby stadium with an area able to hold between 1500 and 3000 people and this gives you a good idea about the architecture of an Elizabethan theatre built the very first theatre with his brother-in-law John Brayne named 'The Theatre'. The architecture of 'The Theatre' was designed as a construction which was similar to a small Roman amphitheatre - the Elizabethan Amphitheatre. The features of the existing blood sport rings were used with the addition of a fixed stage. The other important feature was the cobbled yard, as opposed to the ground suited to animals.

Politics in England
NB this is set up as a speech to the Queen (aka Miss Stone)
Your majesty in the wake of your sister’s death we have come to remind you of your duties as the Queen of England and the political system we have in England.
I shall first start with informing you of your role as the Queen of England. You are the Monarch under the reign of the Tudor House. Our current system of government has some aspects of feudalism and is a .Thus as the Queen that gives you full right over all of us including, me, my partner and even that horrible catholic Phillip II of Spain who from what I hear has tried to get your hand in marriage but doesn’t love you and really is probably just trying to spread Catholicism in England. On that matter it would also be helpful to know that you are indeed the head of the Church of England as a result of your father’s movement from the Roman church. Currently our main form is protestant however a personal suggestion, you show tolerance to the catholic in our country.
Parliament is your advisory council and consists of noble men and land owners. They will advise you on your running of the country however have no say in the final decision that is for you to decide. When you require their assistance or guidance you will be able to open a session of parliament. Once you are done with the discussions you will also dismiss parliament unless you have come to a conclusion in which you will either sign of the bill or not depending on the decision and it will become law. You can make laws without parliament which are called Royal Proclamations when you want to or you and the Privy Council cannot get parliament to agree with thee. Parliament does have the power to come up with bills of its own however thou do have right of Veto and thus all bills must be pasted on to you before they can be made law.
The Privy Council is responsible to the day to day management of the country. Who is on the council is up to you. They look after the economy, welfare military and religion. Like parliament they are also there to advise as you are the supreme leader. The secretary exists as the leader of the council and to inform you of the council’s activities. The council makes your job easier or shall I say possible.
My partner Adam will inform you of how the law and order system works so that you may judge with a clear mind.
