Lent Week 6
Christopher Marlowe: writer, lover, spy, Corpuscle. When his secret diary is discovered during a thoroughly unprofessional archaeological dig, a tale of daring, seduction and secrets is brought to light. The young Marlowe writes of his time as a penniless and foolish undergraduate at Corpus, recruited by the Privy Council to investigate a series of suspicious goings-on in an isolated convent in France.
Marlowe is plunged into a scandalous world of lies, treachery and mad nuns. King Henry IV of France is planning an invasion, and the Queen of England is in danger...
Now Marlowe must escape using only his wit, charm and rugged good looks – and, perhaps, a healthy dose of cross-dressing. But even if he makes it back to English shores, can he trust anyone he finds there…?
The Corpus Freshers’ Show will be performed, directed, produced, designed and crewed entirely by those new to Cambridge drama.
