ONE MAN. TWO SETS OF MARRIAGE VOWS. BAD MATH. Edmund is unexpectedly returned to 1601 London, where Shakespeare’s company reigns in popularity, lords in ruffs conspire against the Crown, and an aging Queen Elizabeth still flirts, costumed in jeweled silks and elaborate lace collars. There are no sewers, no pharmacies, and no antibiotics. Edmund’s 21st century wife Halley isn’t about to let pregnancy and a little sore throat keep her from bringing her husband back home, but Edmund, meanwhile, has just learned his would-be-actor brother was tossed in the Tower for treason, as part of the infamous Essex rebellion implicating Shakespeare’s company. Halley will have to draw on her knowledge of Elizabethan fashion and etiquette to rescue Edmund, but it turns out he’s already got a wife in 1601. What with treason charges, Edmund’s love for his other wife, and scarlet fever in an era without antibiotics, things are turning deadly for Halley and Edmund’s once-perfect marriage.
