The Court of St James’s Palace, London, in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. All present have but lately arrived from the Royal premier of Master Shakespeare’s latest rib-tickling comedy, Two Ladies of Venice. Now, the Queen makes merry and entertains her courtiers, guests, would-be husbands and envoys from foreign powers with a sumptuous banquet. But while all prepare to feast and frolic, dark clouds gather, the sound of war-drums is heard in the distance – and that dear old man the Archbishop of Canterbury, who surely had never an enemy in the world, is found brutally murdered.
At Court in the Act you will discover the following:
- Who murdered the Archbishop of Canterbury?
- Why must Queen Elizabeth never marry?
- Who wrote Shakespeare’s plays?
- What is the secret of Dr John Dee’s magical powers?
- …and can England be saved from defeat by the Spanish Armada?
