Shakespeare's Theatre

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Shakespeare's Theatre As I left my typical house in my typical neighbourhood, I slammed the miniature, oak door, shouting goodbye to my mother on the way. I walked in the direction of the so-called famous globe. I was surrounded by allsorts of weird and wonderful characters. I needed to rush if I wanted to make the performance but an opportunity in disguise hit me in the face like the autumn wind. This was one of the most lucky days I had ever had! What could possibly be a better way to make money? I saw a middle - aged man, he had all brown hairs on his head apart from the few exceptional grey ones and great big, round blue eyes. Which in my opinion are feminine features, but never mind. He had a moustache covering his abnormally large upper lip and he wore a black tuxedo which had obviously been made out of the finest materials money could buy. I got the recently sharpened knife out of my ragged pocket and cautiously rushed to catch up with the obnoxious, rich man. ...read more.

Middle

I swiftly strolled through the cracked, stone archway, leading into the Globe. There were the most magnificent pieces of art people like me could only dream of seeing. The walls were also made of stone and they glistened when the sun shined on them because of the sprinkle of rain yesterday. The statues were exceptionally weird but a joy to glare at. Everywhere I looked I could see posters advertising the plays. It was like being transported into a fantasy world. There was a small queue of people but not long after I was next to the collection box. I reached into my pocket and got hold of the leather wallet. Trying my best to stop it slipping out of my hand.

I could see employees glaring at me with their beady, little eyes, wondering what I was doing with that kind of money but when the crowds started to appear out of nowhere they focused their undying attention on them. ...read more.

Conclusion

The other people on the bottom floor were getting irritated and furious at the man's actions and starting throwing rocks at him and the upper - class people. After a while I managed to free myself and got as far from him as possible. I felt something on my head. After a while I could feel the intense pain spreading all over my body. At that moment in time I realised that someone from above had dashed a razor-sharp, pointed rock at my head. My sight was blurry and was getting harder to see by the second. I could feel blood oozing out of the significantly large wound. It was dripping onto my shoulder like water. Nevertheless I carried on making my way to the door if I had any chance of survival. I could see the sun's light breaking its way into the doorway and then I realised I was heading the right way. I slowly made my way to the door and finally reached the exit My eye - sight had worsened and was getting darker. I could not see anything and was struggling to walk. Unexpectedly, I collapsed. I could feel the pain on my head numbing but was nothing compared to the unreal pain on my body. I was being trampled... ...read more.
