As stated in the video, here’s what I want you to do: 
Go through the notes and decide who you think the most fascinating, intriguing, baffling, horrifying, et cetera, person to appear in the chaotic and epic story of the development of theater during the Elizabethan/Jacobean Period and into the Restoration. Remember, this story has it all: Love, Drama, Crime, Religion, Betrayal, Schemes and Plots, Business and Money, War, Patriotism, Rebellion, and Genius. In this story we have poets who are also criminals, criminals who are also actors, spies who are also playwrights, actors who challenge playwrights to duels, and playwrights who are arrested for insulting the queen, just to mention a few. Which of these REAL PEOPLE you read about in this module would you most want to watch, or make, a film or play about, and WHY?  Tell me why they’ve captured your imagination.  
I think it is safe to say that every person of this time period that we talked about here had a pretty adventurous life to say the least. The one I picked for our discussion however is Christopher Marlowe. I have heard about him before and that he was a famous playwright during Shakespeare time. I watched a movie that was more or less loosely based on William Shakespeare’s real life and in that Marlowe was also a character, but only had a small part and his death was basically mentioned as a side note. So, learning more about him was very fascinating; most of all the fact that he was working as a spy for the Queen. This, together with writing some of the best and most influential plays of that time, make it hard to believe that he was only 29 years old when he was killed (or assassinated). I am sure there are already a number of books about him, and biographies, and also movies, because his short life was just so full of excitement, scandal, and drama.Some of Kit Marlowe’s best known plays were Dr. Faustus, The Tamburlaine, The Massacre at Paris, and Hero and Leander. As we learned in this week’s module, there are many conspiracy theories surrounding Shakespeare and that time. I found one theory online that actually claimed that Christopher Marlowe was in fact William Shakespeare. But this rumor seemed very far-fetched to me and probably comes more from the newly discovered fact that the two actually collaborated on some plays. There have also been arguments about whether or not the two playwrights had known each other, with some saying NO, and others even claiming to see evidence of the two being lovers at some point. But since there is not a lot known about people living in that time of history, we can only speculate on the few facts that we have. And Christopher Marlowe’s eventful life gives us a lot to speculate about.…
I think Ben Jonson’s life would make an interesting film that I’d like to see. He is one of the most well-known English Renaissance writers and theorists, second only to Shakespeare in popularity. Jonson effectively developed the Comedy of Humours genre, leading to him writing other plays. His plays were most successful when performed on stage. In 1598, he murdered his opponent in a duel, narrowly escaping punishment for manslaughter; this could be an ideal section to include in his film. After Shakespeare’s death, Jonson got royal compensation and was generally considered England’s best living author. Ben Jonson’s life was full of crazy events and they can all build up to make an interesting film.
