Product Overview

The 1605 Catholic plot to blow up King and Parliament is one of the great real-life dramas in British history and the unfortunate Guy Fawkes was just one member of its huge cast. Set against a backdrop of mounting religious tensions in Shakespearean England, it drew in people from all ranks of society, from royalty, lords, noblemen and priests, to women, soldiers, servants and spies. Supporting roles were even played by several leading contemporary playwrights, including William Shakespeare and Ben Jonson, Gunpowder: The Players Behind the Plot tells the story of the events of October 1605 to May 1606 through its key players and the original documentary evidence in which they appear.
