Synopsis

A Bel Air Lawyer in King Henry's Court

Christina Hamlett

Published by Cyberpress

2 Male 0 Female

The court of Henry VIII is the backdrop for a clash of wills between a cutthroat attorney and a throat-cutting king

As the play opens, the arrogant monarch's supper is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of a visitor from the future-a fast-talking Jewish lawyer who will be representing Catherine of Aragon's interests in the impending divorce proceedings

Skeptical at first, then angered by this stranger's brash declarations, Henry is nonetheless intrigued by the newcomer's suggestion that five more women after Catherine will hold the title of Queen

Both men - egotistical and intent on winning at all costs - will have their mettle tested over the next 15 years
