Fun and enlightening, this "dramatic introduction to Shakespeare" invites you to travel back to turn-of-the-seventeenth-century London and become an Elizabethan actor! You and your troupe of competitors must navigate the Globe Theater game board, collecting cards with Shakespearean plots, characters, quotations, and scripts...always seeking the opportunity to perform a scene (from Hamlet, Julius Caesar, or Romeo and Juliet)! An instructional "programme" explains several engaging variations of game play. The Play's the Thing offers a uniquely entertaining thrill for Shakespearean scholars and an exciting introduction to the Bard for neophytes. For two to four players, ages 12 and up.
