Summary
Venice, 1585. Threatened daily by Papal assassins, William Shakespeare and his friends, Oldcastle and Hemminges, possess a deadly secret - the names of the Catholic spies in England who seek to destroy Queen Elizabeth. Before long the Pope's agents will close in and fleeing the city will be the players' only option. In Verona, a duke's daughter, Aemilia, is struggling to conceal an affair with her cousin. But darker times are ahead as Father Thornhill is determined to seek out any who don't conform to the pope's agenda. Events will converge in the forests around Verona as plots are hatched and discovered, and disguises are adopted and discarded. Can Shakespeare and his friends escape with their secrets and their lives?
