Product Description
 
Get ready...to play your part! As a young male actor in the 16th century, you have a tough job. You have to perform for rowdy crowds at the Globe theatre, work for little money and rehearse for hours each day. Life is far from fun as a Shakespearean Actor. It's tragic! Top Tips from experts: - Put your dress on. Women aren't allowed to act, so it's your job to play the female roles. When plague strikes, get out of London! Try your luck as a travelling player and take the show on the road. - Keep an eye out for cutpurses. These thieves thrive in busy places like the Glove. - Study hard! If you mangle Shakespeare's lines, you'll be in trouble.
