Will's Spaces and Places

Good eve, groundlyngs! Today I hath thought to presente to thee some knowledge of mine spaces and spaces. Here thou canst observe the discoverie space from mine theatre. When the curtains are pull'd back, some tableau doth greet the eyes... of the audience. I hath writ a scene for the discovery space in mine The Tempest, wherein Miranda and Ferdinand do playe at chess. Marlowe didst use this space when we do finde Doctor Faustus in his study. And Thomas Middleton didst thrust an entire bed, Mistress Allwit on it, onto the stage in his playe of A Chaste Maid in Cheapside.
