Nat Field has been picked by a dazzling international director to perform at Shakespeare's Globe, London's amazing new copy of the theater for which William Shakespeare wrote his plays four hundred years ago. As the boys begin to rehearse strange, eerie echoes of the past begin creeping in. Nat goes to bed mysteriously sick and 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 himself; no longer a vague historical figure, but a quirky, warm-hearted writeractor whose friendship changes Nat forever.
"Cooper brilliantly weaves past and present together, using London's Globe Theatre as backdrop, to demonstrate the timelessness of Shakespeare's works and the theater at large." -Publishers Weekly, starred review
