The year is 1597. For nearly a decade the island of Britain has been under the rule of King Philip in the name of Spain. The citizenry live under an enforced curfew - and in fear of the Inquisition's agents who put heretics to the torch in public displays. And with Queen Elizabeth imprisoned in the Tower of London the British have no one to unite them against the enemy who occupies their land.

But now Shakespeare is given an opportunity to pen his greatest work - a drama that will incite the people of Britain to rise against their persecutors - and change the course of history...
