    had not, hadn't didn't have

    Hi,
    Is it possible to say?:
    1. The Elizabethan Theatres had not a scenery
    2. The Elizabethan Theatres hadn't a scenery
    3. The Elizabethan Theatres didn't have a scenery


    I know that the sentence
    The Elizabethan theatres had no scenery is correct, but I'd like to know if the previous sentences are also acceptable...
    Thanks Rip.

    Sentences # 1 and # 2 are wrong. Either you say "had not got" or "didn't have".
