As royal troops set fire to the Globe Theatre, Elizabethan-era playwright Ben Jonson is tortured by Robert Cecil, who demands to know if Edward de Vere, the Earl of Oxford, is the true author of the writings attributed to William Shakespeare . Flashbacks reveal Oxford's passionate affair with Queen Elizabeth I and how -- in his younger days -- Oxford charmed her with plays like ``A Midsummer Night's Dream.''
