SYNOPSIS: Here’s a tale you can’t refuse. The story of Will Shakespeare’s muse. What starts out as a slow week at Kit Marlowe’s P.I. agency quickly brings a succession of royals, rogues, peeved parents, and damsels in distress seeking his assistance to remedy perceived wrongs. Among them we find Lady MacBeth, Othello, Lady Capulet, King Lear, a conniving Iago and two comely lasses in the form of Ophelia and Portia. Meanwhile, at home, Kit must contend with a woefully lazy roommate named Will, an unemployed actor who believes he could write his own material if only he could come up with some fresh plots. Once Kit starts sharing his day, however, the otherwise indifferent Will suddenly perks up and starts taking notes, a strategy which will lead to the overnight success of one and the untimely death of the other.
