Overview

Adapted for the stage from the novel On the Trail of King Richard III by L.M. Ollie, this play deals with the consequences of obsession; the enemy of rational thought. The dinner brings together an eclectic ensemble of individuals including several members of the Richard III Society. Dedicated to an almost mythical image of this 15th century monarch, these individuals are forced to confront contentious issues never before discussed while mourning the passing, early that day, of one of their own.
The action takes place in the private functions room of the New Black Horse Inn, Market Bosworth on the eve of the anniversary of King Richard's death (August 22nd, 1485). Thirteen people sit down to dinner but only one of them is aware that one more guest from beyond the grave will very shortly be joining them.

Meet the Author

L.M. Ollie is a Canadian-born Kiwi living in New Zealand with her husband Frank and assorted animals, both domestic and wild although the word feral might be more to the point. Her daughter Alicia is a student at the University of Auckland.
Ollie's first novel On the Trail of King Richard III is considered to be "the most concise and historically accurate rendering of the life and times of King Richard III currently in print in fiction". Virtually all the action takes place in the U.K.
Her second, Creatures of the Chase is a trilogy: Richard, Yusuf and Mikail. The novels are set in various locations but mostly in Boston Massachusetts, Southern Ireland and Morocco.
