Multi-award winning and widely-produced play about the murky goings-on of spies and playwrights in the Elizabethan Theatre. Strong contemporary flavour in style and language. Features William Shakespeare, Robert Green and an Australian Cut-Purse.                    

Robert Greene lives in a noisy, bustling underworld of spies, crooks and punks, fending off the debt collectors and arch-rivals, Marlowe and Shakespeare.  A play bursting with life and humour, CHEAPSIDE provides a fascinating account of the lot of professional playwright - and suggests that it may not have changed much over the last four hundred years.
