Jack Drum's Entertainment archiveWhat was life really like backstage in the 1590's? Courtly dances? Pastoral hey-noneys? Groundling gaffaws? Forget it. Award-winning Australian dramatist David Allen brings to life the corruption , torture, and heroic ego-clashes that made Elizabethan theatre what it was. Jack Drum's Entertainment is both a political thriller and a love story, whose cast of characters includes Shakespeare himself, his 'dark lady' Lucy Negro and Sir Francis Bacon, who is chief investigator into the Bard's role in the Earl of Essex's revolt against the Court.
