The play, which basically between 1596 and 1601 the first edition was written by Anthony Munday, to the mists of time has been lost. However, Munday for the right to play as a theater company official said the PlayBook will be used. From there, the court Edmund Tilney, who Revels (Queen Elizabeth and King James’s court essentially censored) serve as the master, purchased the rights to play. Tilney, according to a statement from the British Library to copy took a red pen, the most politically sensitive or need to modify the highlight scenes excised.
From there, a series of playwright Thomas Heywood to Shakespeare himself, between 1603 and 1604 to play an original replicator, together with all amendments, and it was an extremely difficult task of turning profitable undertook extensive rewrite of drama.

The story of Thomas More Evil May Day riots in 1517, which at that time served as the City of London opens with the under-sheriff, riots nativists against immigrants to the region, led by the French and Lombard shown quieting. Tilney, who lived in a time of economic upheaval, when hostile aliens and strangers ran high, took issue with these shots and ordered them removed from the game entirely.
On the basis of language and oratory style, experts believe that the revised uprising scene, which is more powerful than a peace speech, including the work of Shakespeare himself.
The first of these rabble rousers in speech expressed horror at the behavior that is an insult to the dignity of England, and the royal authority. He is a man who suffered from discrimination as it ordered the rioters to see these aliens. What is more the insurgents’ violence, their struggles, which eventually will push society into violent disarray proposals, can inspire others to seek raises. Finally, points out that since God gave himself the right king, breaking the law is sin against God.
“God king to his offyce Obay Iustyce, electricity and Comaund / he bid her rule of terror of fast /, and Wild you,” reads Folio.
