- London sees a controversy between actors and watermen. In the first six months of the year, no theatres operate on the south bank of the Thames, causing a severe decline in demand for the watermen's taxi service. The watermen respond by proposing to limit the locations of the theatres around London, much to the actors' displeasure. The rebuilt Globe Theatre opens by June, and Philip Henslowe's new Hope Theatre opens in October, negating the watermen's complaint. John Taylor the Water Poet describes the controversy in his The True Cause of the Watermen's Suit Concerning Players.
