All’s Well That Ends

Time: 1580s, a cold winter’s evening
Place: The Final Curtain, a tavern of dubious repute in Deptford, London, England

The tavern is much frequented by theatre people, since it is just around the corner from one of London’s principal theatres, The Swan. Many theatre patrons stop in for a drink before or after the performance, and it is also busy with workers from the nearby London docks.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth is on the throne of England – unmarried, and without a direct heir. Elizabeth rules a Protestant England that is beset by the two great Catholic powers of France and Spain. War has been threatened many times, but until now at least, it has never been loosed.

Tonight, soldiers are on the streets. A Curfew has been announced. The theatre has been closed, and the performance cancelled. A case of plague has been reported in the district, and no-one is permitted to leave until it has been investigated.

The cancellation of tonight’s performance – of Kit Marlowe’s well-received Doctor Faustus - is the second tragedy to strike this area today. This afternoon, the dead body of Marlowe himself was carried from this tavern.

Kaye, Heidi

You were born in America, but have spent your entire adult life in Britain. Having been introduced to freeforms at the first Convulsion twenty years ago, you have written quite a few yourself over the past fifteen years. Your secret identity as the Stuart heir to the throne has not yet been revealed, so you must be on your guard against agents of the Germanic line of the family. Your abilities include fast talk, carrying a big stick, and immortalising your cats in games. Your main goal: run All's Well That Ends to build up your loyal following so that you may at last rightfully take the throne from the usurper.

Smith, Andrew

AJ long ago decided that his best way to get into Brian's games was to help run them. More recently, he extended this policy to Tony's games. So far, this strategy is working well ...
