A star of the theatre and a falconer who can see the future form a secret troupe performing breathtaking plays in hidden corners of the city. As their fame grows, the troupe fans the flames of rebellion among the city’s outcasts, drawing themselves into a dark web of the royal court. Embattled, with the plague on the rise throughout the country, the Queen seeks a reading – a moment that will unleash chaos.
