Introduction
Welcome to our Autumn production.
Apologies to the Bard, but the plot, if not necessarily the language is worthy of him "Oh what a tangled web we weave when we first practice to deceive." It's Henry's birthday and Fate has a present for him that he was not expecting. But then it seems that Fate has a change of heart. Prepare to be amazed and enthralled as Henry, ably aided and abetted my his wife and friends (old and new) "takes arms against a sea of troubles...."
