The Herbal Bed is an emotional thriller set in the summer of 1613. Susanna Hall, daughter of William Shakespeare, has been accused of immoral behavior by a drunken young gentleman and responds by charging him with slander. In those days such a charge was heard in the church court in Worcester Cathedral and so Susanna and all those involved must face an inquisition-like trial. The outcome is in doubt until the last.
