Whitefriars was an indoor theatre for the boy-players. Located at the old monastery site, this theatre was clearly designed to rival the Blackfriars and staged plays from 1609 to 1613.
Philip Rossiter opened this indoor theatre to the south of Fleet Street in the City of Westminster, when the boy company which could no longer play at Blackfriars was moved here (the King's Revels Children). Like Blackfriars before the arrival of the King's Men, therefore, Whitefriars was aimed at a well-to-do fee paying audience unlike the larger outdoor playhouses from this period.
