Heads will roll...
The setting is Tudor England. Centre-stage we find Sir Roger De Polfrey, the once reputable Duke of Suffolk, and owner of Stoat Hall. Allergic to responsibility, Sir Roger craves a simple life bumbling along desperately trying to avoid the demands of his eccentric wife Aveline and his lovelorn daughters.
But, with his once impressive stately home falling into disrepair, and being based bang in the middle of a pilgrimage route, De Polfrey has his work cut out. To make matters worse, the Secret Order of the Stoats have hatched a scurrilous plan and Henry VIII and his entourage have announced a surprise visit! Could this be a chance to marry off one his daughters to the noble king?
Expect alchemy, eccentricity, scary stoats and royal romance in this affectionate re-working of Wolf Hall.
Expect ruffs, ruffians, furry mammals and laughs galore!
