A PRISONER IN MALTA
Marriott Conference Center Auditorium
Saturday September 3, 12:30-1:15
In 1583, the nineteen-year-old Christopher Marlowe–with a reputation as a brawler, a womanizer, a genius, and a social upstart at Cambridge University–is visited by a man representing Marlowe's benefactors. There are rumors of a growing plot against her majesty Queen Elizabeth I. Her spymaster, Sir Francis Walsingham, has charged Marlowe with tracking down the truth. The path to that truth seems to run through a prisoner held in a heavily guarded dungeon in Malta. Marlowe must use every bit of his wits and daring to unravel one of the greatest mysteries in history involving the government of Spain, high ranking English nobles, and even Pope himself.
