Shakespearse Sonnet (

Shakespeare was born in Stratford-on-Avon (United Kingdom) where he eventually died at the age of 52 on April 23 (his presumed birthday) which is possibly also where he wrote his play Romeo and Juliet in 1595 (Asimov, pg 1) Shakespeare was also part of some acting companies such as The Lord Chamberlain's men and The King’s men (Wright, pg 12).

Romeo and Juliet Play (ROMEO & JULIET, 1597. - Title page from the first publication, London, 1597, of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet.". Fine Art. Britannica ImageQuest, Encyclopædia Britannica, 25 May 2016. Accessed 10 Mar 2017.)

In Shakespeare play there were no woman actors because it was forbidden for them to perform in Elizabeth theaters . They built that theater out of lumber from a theater built earlier called ¨The Theater¨ (Alchin, pg 1). Shakespeare died on his (presumed) birthday April 23 1616 at the age of 52.
