Summary: "Put your dress on. Women aren't allowed to act, so you'll have to play some female roles. When the plague strikes, get out of London! Try your luck as a traveling player and take the show on the road. Keep an eye out for cutpurses. These thieves thrive in busy places like the Globe. Study hard! If you mangle Shakespeare's lines, you'll be in trouble" --Cover, p. 4.
