What were the original performance conditions of onsWoyzech?

I don't need loads of information but just any relating to the audience and political and social environment in which it was performed and so if these conditions would effect the way it was performed. Thanks

There was a lot of social and political upheaval occurring during the time of the author's life. One problem was the fast rise of the population of the area, which caused a lot of poor living conditions. The government was also quite harsh and often used corporal punishment.
