Christopher Marlowe, the most talented and accomplished playwright and poet of his generation, meets his terrible fate in a shocking and surprising confrontation in a riverside tavern in Deptford. One week later, Will Shaxper is recruited to act as stand-in for the disgraced Marlowe. These two innocent men struggle to survive while trapped in the Elizabethan Age of Machiavellian spies, slapstick puppets, and an outrageous avalanche of unintended consequences.
Part of the Fledgling Theatre Company and the Caravan Theatre Company's first annual 'Battle of the Bards' festival, honoring the work of Christopher Marlowe.
