Publisher's Summary

King of Shadows carries us to London along with a troupe of young American actors to perform A Midsummer Night's Dream in the new Globe Theatre. But through the magic of Susan Cooper's imagination, the journey takes us through time, where one of the young actors discovers he has become a friend of, and actor alongside, none other than William Shakespeare.

This is one of my favorite books and it was so enjoyable to hear it read as a play. the actors were well chosen for their voices.

Not my cup of tea

Although I adore the book King of Shadows, I can't say that I particularly liked this dramatised adaptation of it. Each to his own though, others may love it.
