The Blackfriars Theatre (717 words)
Blackfriars was the location of many momentous events, such as the repudiation of Catherine of Aragón by Henry VIII, and the voting of the Parliament to charge Cardinal Wolsey with treason.
In 1596, another part of the old Blackfriars was bought by James Burbage, owner of the Theatre and father of famed actor Richard Burbage, for £600 from the estate of Cawarden, late Master of Revels.
The residents of Blackfriars got an injunction against the theatre being used by an adult troupe and Burbage had to lease the playhouse to children's companies—around 1597, the Chapel Children are found in residence.
