    Default scenery or sceneries

    Hi, I'd like to know if I can use the plural form or if the singular one has already a plural meaning.
    1)Once theatres had no sceneries
    2) in Elizabethan thetres there weren't sceneries

    Are they correct?
    Thanks Rip.

    Default Re: scenery or sceneries

    'Scenery' is uncountable, Ripley, so your sentences are incorrect.

    'The scenery in the Globe Theatre was minimal.'

    The counter for 'scenery' is 'pieces', or the individual terms, like 'set pieces', 'flats', 'drops', etc.
