Shakespeare takes a new twist in this three-part series by Gary Blackwood about an orphan boy named Widge who gets a job with the Lord Chamberlain's Men, an acting company at the Globe Theater run by William Shakespeare himself.
In this first installment, Widge, an orphan since birth, has had many masters but none like Simon Bass, a cruel, dishonorable man who makes Widge work for him room and board. When Simon decides he wants to run his own theater company, he tasks Widge with using a special shorthand writing to steal Shakespeare's play Hamlet.
As Widge integrates himself into the Lord Chamberlain's Men, he realizes his connection with the company means more to him than stealing the play. Now he must figure out how to loosen the grip held by Simon Bass and his evil henchman Falconer, before it's too late.
