“Love is a god, and marriage is but words.”
Perfect for lovers of true crime, “Arden of Faversham'' tells the story of a woman’s real-life pact with her lover to murder her husband. Its authorship is as mysterious as its plot: “Arden” has been attributed to numerous authors over the years, including William Shakespeare, Christopher Marlowe, and Thomas Kyd.
