Description

In the reign of Elizabeth I, when theatrical performances were frowned upon and frequently forbidden by the City authorities, Shoreditch welcomed many theatrical people. The first theatre in England, The Theatre, was founded here in 1576 by James Burbage. His sons, Cuthbert and Richard, continued his work. All three lie in the churchyard of St. Leonard's Church.
