The notorious - and hilarious – homegrown scandal of jealousy, lust, and murder that shocked a small England town. No one knows who wrote this deliciously dark and funny Elizabethan crime drama, though claims have been made for Marlowe, Kyd, and even the bard himself, William Shakespeare.

Whoever it was, he (or she) appears to have been memorably bitter and twisted. Based on a real-life homicide that shocked England in 1551, the rarely performed production chronicles an unfaithful wife who, in concert with her lover and two floundering hit-men, sets about murdering her powerful husband. Murder. Mystery. Adultery. Colorful criminal conspirators. Does she succeed? No spoilers, if that's possible for a play that is over 400 years old.
