The upshot was that Kit Marlowe was in trouble, Shakespeare got killed by an assassin meant for Kit, and Kit took over Shakespeare's identity. The story mostly revolved around the interaction between Kit/William and Anne. It may have been called "The Second Best Bed." Does this sound familiar to anyone? Is it online?
