    In the fights bladders of fake blood were hidden under the armpit (the fake
    blood was usually either Sheep's blood or vinegar)

    "blood" would come out to simulate a wound.

                      The stage
• The contract for the building of the Fortune gives useful
  information about the size of the theatre, and the
  accommodation for the audience.
• The building was to be three stories in height, with four
  "gentlemen's rooms," "sufficient and convenient divisions
  for twopennie rooms," The three rows of seats up the sides are
  called the Two penny Rooms (rows one and two) and Penny Gallery
  (top row).} and seating in all the galleries.
• Unfortunately, when it comes to the actual stage and
  tire-house, the contract is singularly unhelpful. It says:
• And the said Stage to be in all proportions contrived and
  fashioned like unto the Stage of the said Play house
  called the Globe.
