  1. Three Years to Play by Colin MacInnes, Farrar Straus Girox, 1970.

    “Prostitute’s only son leaves the forest where his mother raised him and heads to London. There he meets whores, tricksters, thieves and conmen and falls in with a troupe of actors and players led by Wm. Shakespeare.” I am quoting a plot summary from Goodreads. I haven’t read the book in 35 years, but I do remember enjoying it. It is largely concerned with As You Like It.

    Character type: Upon the Boards
