The English renaissance-

The English renaissance was a cultural and artistic movement in England. This was from the 16th century to the early 17th century. It was associated with the pan-European Renaissance that many cultural historians believed originated in the 14th Century, in Tuscany.

Indigo Jones was an architect and England’s first major scene designer in the 127th century. He had visited Italy and was inspired by the set design there, so he introduced the Italian concept to the English court theatre of king James, this was called perspective scenery.
He designed this using side wings and many backdrops, in which he framed with a proscenium arch. All of the features are still associated with tradition al theatres today.
