KING OF SHADOWS

by | Read by a Full Cast

Audio Theater Ages 8+ • 2 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2005

This fully dramatized production tells the story of Nat Turner, who's been selected to travel to England to perform A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM at the Globe theater. Nat falls ill and wakes to find himself somehow transported back to Shakespeare's time and to the role of Puck. This production, obviously geared toward educators, includes an author overview, section on Elizabethan vocabulary, footnotes, and questions for discussion. Shakespeare would have loved the concept (a play within a play!), but it's hard to actually listen without the visuals. Younger listeners especially will need to be very focused and to take advantage of the accompanying materials to avoid confusion. That said, the production is an engaging idea, carefully conceived and executed. J.C.G. 2006 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
