As they travel, the company of players-managed by its book\holder, Nicholas Bracewell-learns that their arch-rival, Bansbury’s Men, have been pirating their best works. Though Nicholas closely guards the only complete copy of each opus, there is no safeguard against some actors banding together to memorize the lines and so give away the play’s entire script.
