The Long-Lost Secret Diary of the World's Worst Shakespearean Actor
This series of hilarious fictional diaries put us inside the heads of hapless figures from history in frazzling situations. Robert, a boy living in Southwark in early 17th century London, finds himself employed as an actor in the Globe theatre, playing roles written by the greatest playwright of the age: William Shakespeare. But when the coronation of a new king, James I, threatens the future of the theatre, Robert has to come up with a cunning plan to save the company. If he doesn't succeed, Robert will have to go back to collecting dog poo for a living.
Will Robert save the day? Will he ever improve at acting? And will Shakespeare ever listen to one of Robert's brilliant ideas for a play?
