To celebrate the re-opening, a no-expenses-spared production of The Glove, a new play about the discovery of a true Shakespearean accessory. London’s chattering classes are abuzz with gossip about the theatre, rumors about Peregrine, critiques of the play. But when murder takes center-stage, everyone gets very quiet, and only Inspector Alleyn can persuade them to start chattering againthis time, with a purpose.
