Tobias Bacon died of love in 1618. Join him on the 400th anniversary of his death as he finds out how. This piece of new writing by David William Hughes combines comedy, historical research and authentic performances of Renaissance music. With the help of the audience, David plays Tobias and several of his lovers, all whilst singing and playing the lute, in a one-man musical featuring genuine Elizabethan songs of sadness, satire and seduction.
