All the Globe's a Stage

Marlow stared down at the model. "This isn't a replica of the Royal," he said. "This is a theatre in the Round." He shook his head. "What a challenge it would be to perform on a circular stage!"

"It's the Globe," said Jasfoup, pushing a tiny wooden Faustus across the stage. "It's a pity it won't be built for another ten years."

"How did you find out about this?" asked Grayson. "The Queen's not announced any new theatres with the current wave of Puritan outcry against them."

Jasfoup coughed. "I have my sources," he said.

"Aye, I'll bet you do at that." Nicholas Skeres rested a hand on his sword. "Catholic sources, no doubt."

"Catholic? No." Jasfoup winked. "Quite the opposite, old chap. Quite the opposite."

Just wait until they find out who Jasfoup's 'sources' really are. Hehheh!

God bless and take care. Bye, :)!

And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts.....

Olga - Exactly!

Aims! I'm still at the mewling and puking stage, I think!

The words straight out of my mouth, Aims. :) Marlowe would have been eager as a tot over ice cream, but then Jasfoup would know that.
