Plays are first for strangers, who can desire no better recreation, then to come and see a Play; then for Citizens, to feast their wits; then for Gallants, who  otherwise perhaps would spend their money in drunkennesse, and lasciviousness, doe find a great delight and delectation to see a Play; then for the learned, it does increase and add to their knowledge. – The Stage-Players Complaint, 1641
