- This play is based on actual events which occurred in Stratford-upon-Avon in the summer on 1613, when William Shakespeare's eldest daughter Susanna was publicly accused of having a sexual liaison with Rafe Smith, a married neighbour and family friend.
- Despite a recanting by slander in the court of Worcester Cathedral. Susanna's husband, the respected physician of Stratford John Hall, is desperate for her to clear her name in order to save his practice and he gives her his complete support – but how can he avoid the fact that one summer's night while he was away from Stratford, Rafe Smith was seen secretly leaving their herbal garden?
- Faced with political divisions within the church, the hearing in the bishop's court becomes a risky gamble as three people's private lives are held up to the glare of intense public scrutiny in this emotional thriller whose outcome is anything but certain.
