King of Shadows


"Nathan Field, an teen orphan from North Carolina, is a talented actor who is chosen for the Company of Boys, who will rehearse Shakespeare, be flown to England, and perform the plays "as they were done" at the Globe Theater. Shortly after arriving in London, he falls very sick -- perhaps with bubonic plague -- and wakes up to find himself in London 400 years before: in 1599, shortly after the original Globe opened. He learns how rough and hard life was in Shakespeare's time, runs afoul of a rival in the cast, but is befriended by the great playwright himself and gets to perform as Puck in a performance of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" before Queen Elizabeth herself.
