ABSTRACT
The article discusses the roles of audience in the evening entertainment mounted in the disguysing house constructed by Henry VIII on May 5, 1527. It mentions that the audience reveals how the sixteenth-century theatre can be used to create, enact, and replace upon foreign policy. It says that the different elements of entertainment and conventional are both shaped by a specific political process in which many of the audience are involved. It adds that the political and personal relationships between the members of the chosen audience constitute the entertainments being watched.
