"To Be" (a backstory for "Hamlet")
The sole witness to the King's murder returns to Elsinore, seeking revenge. When she whispers what she knows, kings will fall and bastards be raised up. Her slender fingers hold the blade to the throat of Denmark. The royals may play their murderous game, but servants rule by stealth and cunning.

FELICITY :The question's down to this: what's my estate:
