In the 1580’s Thomas Kyd was one of the first significant playwrights in London, and arguably the greatest of them all.
Soon after Kyd made his mark, Christopher Marlowe arrived on the scene and became the second great playwright of the period.
In the months that followed, Kyd was a broken man, and it is believed that he died from the wounds he suffered while tortured.
It could become the era of Shakespeare.
