It portrays a theatre genius riven by sexual and political conflicts. By the author of "Any Old Iron". The whole of Elizabethan England--from the court and its intrigue to the theatre and its genius to London and its slums--is brilliantly recreated in this joyous celebration of the life of Christopher Marlowe.
