Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Nat Field has a talent for acting, and he has been picked by a dazzling international director to perform at Shakespeare's Globe. But strange, eerie echoes of the past begin creeping in. Nat goes to bed mysteriously sick — is it the dreadful bubonic plague of the sixteenth century? He wakes up healthy, but he's no longer in the present. He's in 1599, acting at the original Globe. And his costar is Shakespeare: a quirky, warm-hearted writer/actor whose friendship changes Nat forever.

Synopsis:

Nat Field can forget all his sorrows and problems when he's on the stage. He loves to act, to submerge his own personality into one of Shakespeare's characters. He's one of 40 boys, aged 11 to 18, lucky and talented enough to be selected for The Company of Boys. The Company will go to London to put on "Midsummer Night's Dream" and "Julius Caesar." Nat is thrilled, even though the company's director is tyrannical and extremely strange. Then Nat falls sick, and when he wakes from his fever he's somewhere else — it's London, all right, but the London of 1599, and the play he's to act in is directed by William Shakespeare himself.
