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.
