A roving medieval theater troupe finds how perilously close to reality a play can come when the actors dramatize the events of a recent murder. This specific mystery unfolds against the larger question of how each person's role in life is determined. Reader Michael Maloney is adept at dramatizing the players, especially Nicholas, the renegade priest who joins the company and narrates the tale. Maloney's passionate portrayal breathes spontaneity into everything Nicholas feels as he discovers the chaotic world and his own nature. Rich of voice and a skilled provider of dramatic tension, Maloney handily fulfills the role of entertainer. His bearing also inspires deeper consideration of the contents in a morality play.
