Abstract:
In the absence of concrete information about the Whitefriars stage, a prudent foundation on which to build is a model of a generic Jacobean playhouse stage platform, if any such thing can be said to have existed. This thesis discusses the various stage spaces of the period and attempts to construct a generalised vision of the early modem stage by breaking down the various early modem performance spaces into their pertinent features. In a comparative analysis, the corresponding stage fixtures of the Whitefriars playhouse are addressed In a similar manner, deconstructing the space with an aim toward its reconstruction. There are many gaps in the evidence regarding this particular performance space, but when the Whitefriars specific information is compiled and combined with the commonalities found between other comparable venues, this infamously obscure stage may begin to be conjecturally reconstructed.
