Narrator David Thorpe performs this mystery with vigor. His high-spirited narration plunges listeners into the 1580s, when plays were high entertainment for all levels of society. In this tangled tale, a group of actors performs a play about a murder that has recently occurred, a performance that sets them up as subsequent targets for the murderers. Listeners are privy to the raucous actors and playwrights who have a hand in the play, which is successful, despite all odds and obstacles. Thorpe assigns each character a different tone and accent, successfully differentiating them. As Thorpe brings the play-within-a-play to a new audience, listeners will delight in the language and wit of late-sixteenth-century England.
