British theater history is full of mysteries, thanks to its long (and not always illustrative) history.
In fact, it is only in recent decades that theater has become an acceptable pastime and theater tickets have become popular gifts for families and children. Before that, it covered shady theater history and its association with low entertainment and a fresher underground theater and the people who participated in it in mystery.
Here are five mysteries that still haven't been solved …
- Will Real Will Shakespeare stand up? – Although many scholars and audiences agree that the pieces written by William Shakespeare are among the finest examples of drama in English, there is little evidence that the man we know by this name actually wrote them! Some have suggested that contemporaries like Christopher Marlowe may have written down these scripts, but the real answer to the question of who the real author was is still wide-ranging debate.
- Who was the first actress allowed on stage? – Some cite Margaret Hughes (1630-1685) as the first "actress", in an era when women were universally banned from the stage and female roles were played by boy actors, but Anne Marshall – who worked between 1661 and 1682 – has some evidence to promote her status as the first female actress. Sure, both women showed up on stage at the end of the 1660s in Shakespeare plays, but the exact question of who was the first has never been answered.
- Was the famous theater killer Richard Arthur Prince really mad? – Prince was convicted of the sensational murder of 1898 by an actor in the London Beach Theater, but was not considered responsible for his actions. But was Prince really incapable of determining right from wrong? The judge thought so, but Prince was still jailed for the murder. An even greater mystery is why this case, which captured the imaginations of so many at that time, was never turned into a true mystery game! Sure, lots of people would buy theater tickets for this kind of story.
- What is the modern theater group looking for? – This is the question that every producer, writer, director and actor in British theater wants to know the answer to – the million pound question. What makes theater such a fleeting and wonderful experience, and separates shows that make huge amounts of money from those who fail within months, or spend weeks touring dark rural places? Why the interest? To figure out how to sell theater tickets for the public can earn the person who solves this mystery a fortune.
- Where is British theater going? – In recent years, the emergence of elaborate "ensemble" work – called "playwriting by committee" – has preceded the single author play. The most famous example is probably the Scottish National Theater "Blackwatch". Is this a new direction for theater?
American Singer Canary is considered the closest formidable opponent to Roller Canary for its melodious songs. They are a relatively new cross breed of the breed, first born in the 1930s from the beautiful Border Canary and Roller Canary who are revered for their perfect song which took over 400 years to master. This blend literally gives the American Singer Canary the best of both worlds in terms of genetics. They are often awarded prizes for having the best balance between beauty and singing ability.
They are available in a variety of colors and color combinations including: blue, yellow, red, blue, gold, fawn, orange, white and others.
Males are singers for all breeds. The song of a singing bird is how they attract the woman to them. A woman can sing in her early days, but will usually end before her first moulting stage (6-9 months). Males tend to cling around females until the breeding season, so if you want to be sung often - they are best left in their own cage.
American Singer Canary is a songbird and needs all the nutrition that other Canary breeds do. Food blends rich in canary grass seeds, vitamins, minerals and fruit pieces are the preferred treatment for this breed. Make sure they have plenty of water to drink and swim.
Apart from properly regimented feeding: All Canaries need a clean environment. This means that even though they are fairly low maintenance, you want to set aside some time to clean and disinfect the cage every week. It is quite safe to let them wander a bit in your home or on the porch. They will quickly find their way back to the cage when you are done, as they need their food and will want to come back on their turn or cozy perch.
