Sam Stars At Shakespeare\'s Globe

Sam Stars At Shakespeare's Globe

(2009)
A novel by

 
When Samuel discovers the Globe Theatre, he longs to work for the greatest writer in England. Impressed by the boy's pluck, Master Shakespeare agrees to employ him. One by one, Samuel plays Cobweb, then the grandson of Coriolanus, then a young Roman boy in Julius Caesar. But Master Shakespeare says he is still not ready to play the part he wants most: Juliet. Then one day, Sam gets a lucky break. But has he got what it takes to be one of the finest players in all of England? This vivid historical tale re-creates Shakespeare in his setting and explores the fascinating convention of boys playing girls' parts in 16th-century England.
