"Alas Poor Marlowe; Can a Mother Forget; Ambition; & Light Lady of the Sonnets" all feature in this collection of Elizabethan-Period SHORT PLAYS. The Post Elizabethan Literary-World has always upheld Christopher (Kit) Marlowe as a genius. This short-play offers a plausible character analysis and more credible solution as to the "mystery" of his circumstantial death, but not without satire or sub-textual explanations. Can a Mother Forget" puns on the word Mother (replacing "Woman") to allude to the theme of the play in which only 5-principle characters for the most part feature. A follow-on play "Ambition" ties in with the much lamented death of Robert Devereux, Second-Earl of Essex; and features R. Cecil, W. Raleigh, and other colourful true-life characters. "Light Lady" is a parody of GB=Shaw's "Dark-Lady".
