The Play's the Thing

Author(s): Ann Swinfen

Special Order

When Kit Alvarez returns from Muscovy, it is to discover that her post as physician at St Thomas's hospital has been given to another. Trying to eke out the small income she earns from some of Dr Nunez's private patients, she undertakes paid work as a copyist with James Burbage's company. But the players' companies find themselves under threat. Two of Burbage's men are murdered. One of Henslowe's men is attacked. And two important new plays go missing, one by Will Shakespeare and one by Christopher Marlowe. Are the thefts merely the work of a jealous unlicensed company? Or is there a conspiracy afoot to use the plays in some more dangerous game?
