The Most Unkindest Cut Of All: Will (David Mitchell) has decided to write a play about the life of Julius Caesar. The only problem is how to deal with his assassination. After all, Her Majesty is not likely to approve of any play about doing in the head of state, and Robert Greene (Mark Heap) is particularly keen to label Will a traitor.
Things are not going well in the theatre either. Burbage is hogging the limelight and the other players have decided to get together and depose him. Should Will back the conspirators? Or is there a way he can use his skill with words to stop the plotters in their tracks?
Pictured above are Longinus (Ola Orebiyi), Burbage (Steve Speirs) and Toby (Beattie Edmondson)
