Will Shakespeare, Symington "Tuck" Smythe, and their band of thespians are contracted to provide entertainment at a rural estate as part of a large wedding pageant.

When the headstrong bride turns up dead, and overheard conversations contain conspiratorial plots against the families involved, Will and Tuck must once again pull double duty as thespians and sleuths to solve the case of The Slaying of the Shrew.
