Caravan Theatre Company Presents
Marlowe's Fate
by Peter B. Hodges

One evening, late in May, Christopher Marlowe, poet, playwright and spy, died in an Inn in South East London – or did he?


Peter B Hodges’ witty literary mystery implicates Queen Elizabeth’s spy-masters in a disappearance. This might have been the end of the story but Marlowe continued to write and needed an alias.


Enter Shaxper into Richard Field’s Print shop and the plot thickens. The arguments raged over the centuries resulting in a wild sparring match between our two protagonists, performed by Penn O’Gara’s elegant puppets, leading to the ultimate showdown over Marlowe’s Fate. In the end, as the spy masters discover, only Shaxper knows the truth.


Caravan Theatre Company present the UK premier of this entertaining and intriguing story. Set design by Ruben Speed, Lighting by Harvey Nowak-Green, with Costumes and puppets by Penn O’Gara and an amazing cast of 7 actors playing mutiple roles.
