Nobody knows how Shakespeare first began his career in the theater. Between 1585 and 1592, however, a number of London troupes would tour in Stratford frequently, so it is possible that young Shakespeare could have been hired by the Queen’s or Leicester’s men. Nevertheless, regardless of how he got into his acting career, he was an accomplished actor in London at the end of 1592.
The Turning Point
The pivotal moment in Shakespeare’s career occurred in 1593. All the theaters had been shut down since 1592 because of a plague outbreak. Due to this, there’s a possibility that Shakespeare went on a tour to the remote areas of London with some performing companies such as the Lord Strange’s Men or Pembroke’s Men. During these times, it appears more likely that he quit his theater career completely and concentrates on his non-dramatic poetry. By the end of 1593, Shakespeare’s hard work gained him peer recognition as Earl of Southampton noticed his works. Eventually, Earl became his patron and on April 18, 1593, “Venus and Adonis” was published. This is his official debut as a lyricist.
The Theater Comeback
In 1594, he returned to acting and making script for a group called the Lord Chamberlain’s Men where he eventually became the resident dramatist. This showed that Shakespeare had acted already with the Chamberlain’s Men even before Elizabeth I on numerous events. As a reward for their performance, all the actors were given 10 pounds each. In this period, Shakespeare was able to write many plays such as the “Richard II,” “Romeo and Juliet,” “Love’s Labour’s Lost” and “King John”. According to G.E. Bentley in “Shakespeare and the Theatre”, William Shakespeare became engrossed in his roles as writer and an actor by this time. He was constantly and totally involved in acting companies and theaters than any other playwright. Shakespeare is the one and only artist who not only wrote and acted plays for his company and shared the earnings but also served as a caretaker of his own building. For seventeen years, he was one of the landlords of the Globe theater and was also one of the housekeepers of the company’s second theater called the Blackfriars for eight years. Shakespeare and the Chamberlain’s Men also performed in well-established theaters like the Theater, Curtain and Swan, even before their acquisition of the Globe in 1599. Their group also performed regular shows for Elizabeth I and her court.
Even though William Shakespeare died a long time ago, his plays and poems are still relevant in today’s new generation. In fact, First Folio was sold in 2006 for 4.6 million.
