Lord Strange’s Men Troupe Member # 18 (illustrated by Lars Brown)

On June 23rd 1593, William Shakespeare and The Lord Strange’s Men acting troupe go to Wilmington, England near The Long Man of Wilmington to perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream for the first time.

This unnamed man is one of the members of Lord Strange’s Men and is working at this first memorable performance. He is an actor who plays Pyramus for this performance.

This actor appears in Sandman # 19, on page 21, in panel 1.

I really like this portrait from Lars. I like the expression on the character’s face and the inclusion of the branch, which represents the wall he tries to kiss Thisbe through is a nice touch.
