“What are the three parts of powder? Anger. Nostalgia. Love.” These are what drive Thomas Percy, a Catholic Englishman chafing under the rule of the Scotsman James I in the first decade of the seventeenth century. Percy’s passions, fueled by an obsession with the medieval-history plays staged at Shakespeare’s Globe playhouse, erupt at last in a wild plan to save the soul of a kingdom – by killing its Protestant king.
