The Player's Advice to Shakespeare by Brian K. Stewart
In 1607, an actor in Shakespeare's company turns his back on the theatre and throws himself into the violent politics of the day, joining an agrarian revolt in the Midlands. After the revolt is crushed, he returns to London, determined to urge Shakespeare to use the power of the theatre to talk about what is going on in the country.
