Product description

Shakespeare made accessible for young readers! Come wend your way along London's Thames River to the Globe Theatre, where seven favorite Shakespearean plays are being performed! Marcia Williams brings to life ROMEO AND JULIET, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, JULIUS CAESAR, HAMLET, MACBETH, THE WINTER'S TALE, and THE TEMPESTt, making liberal use of Shakespeare's rich dialogue. With the help of her signature comic-strip style, the Bard's 400-year-old masterworks become as relevant to young readers today as they were to theatergoers way back then.

Author information

Marcia Williams went to visit the Globe Theatre while it was being rebuilt. "It wasn't until I was actually there," she says, "that the full impact of the environment hit me. Elizabethan actors didn't rehearse; and the audience was encouraged to cheer when they liked something and to shout (and throw things) when they didn't. It must have been quite a scene."

Review quote

"An inviting taste of the Shakespearean buffet, as well as a rare glimpse into the character of Elizabethan theater."
