Murders that mirror and interrupt Shakespeare's plays are afoot in the Globe Theatre and everyone is a suspect

Even William Shakespeare

Some even suspect a ghost

Now it's up to puritanical High Constable Colin Makepeace to sort through the dead ends and false trails to find the truth and the killer

Along the way, the straitlaced constable finds he is falling in love with Nell Dancer, the spirited tavern owner

Who is also Shakespeare's London girlfriend ...

Premiered by the New York State Theatre Institute.

Runs about 90 minutes


"Murder most entertaining...[with] some wonderful wordplay that captures Shakespeare's metaphor rich speech" ~ Metroland

"A richly layered show...that appeals to the senses and tickles the imagination. You'll be caught up in a good old fashioned murder mystery...Offers a unique sense of what it might have been like to work at the old Globe" ~ Daily Gazette
