New writing by Andrew Raynes.

A murder trial. The newly married Earl and Countess of Somerset are called to be tried for the murder of Sir Thomas Overbury, who died in the Tower of London a few months before.

A complex tale unfolds, of love, betrayal, and treason: Thomas' manipulation of the Earl to gain the King’s ear, the mysterious circumstances surrounding his death, and more. The deadly consequences of factionalism and politics play out, but who is responsible? And what lies behind it all?
