Britain has a long tradition of drama. British theatre began in the thirteenth century, before the time of Shakespeare, with a series of short stories from the Bible called the Mystery plays. Even today, every four years in York and Chester, ordinary people still perform these plays.
Acting, both by amateurs and professionals, is still very much alive in Britain. British professional actors are usually highly respected and well-trained. The most famous British theatres are the National theatre and Barbican. The Royal Shakespeare Company performs at the Barbican in London and in Stratford-on-Avon, where Shakespeare was born. These theatres receive money from the government so that they can perform several different plays a year. In spite of this money from the government, many theatres, including the National theatre and the Barbican, find it difficult to survive. There are many smaller theatre groups in Britain. Some of them receive money from the government to perform plays which are contemporary and experimental.
Commercial theatres do not receive any money from the government. They usually perform very popular plays. If a play is successful, the company will perform it for many years.
