Subtle Hint Productions in conjunction with the Kutztown University Renaissance Club presents:
December, 1486. The bitter civil war that has divided England for so many years has ended with Henry (VII) Tudor sitting upon the throne. The War of the Roses is over; having torn families apart and turning the best of friends into the worst of enemies. This is a tale of two of those families; The House of Westcott and the House of Montgomery. The Patriarchs of both houses were once great friends and allies, but when the trumpets of war blew, one stayed loyal to his king, while the other aligned with his challenger.
Now, ten years later, Baron William Montgomery hopes to undo the damage done by that terrible war. Weary of conflict, he wishes to live his remaining years with the knowledge that the house his son Charles inherits is a strong and stable one. His plan on the surface seemed simple enough. The best way to mend the fence between Harold; The Earl of Westcott and himself was to join their two families as one, by marrying Charles to Harold’s daughter Mary. Of course there were a great many things that played against this plan.
