The series began with The Queens Head which is the name of the inn at which they stage their plays. The story opens with the acting troupe performing a new play Caesars Fall in the yard of the inn. During rehearsals Edmund Hoode collapses on stage and then the company's costumes are stolen from a locked room. Nicholas then meets Hywel and Dorothea . Hywel is the counterfeit crank of the title, a beggar who poses as being subject to epileptic fits. Nicholas is impressed with his acting skills and invites him to visit the Queens Head.
Nicholas is forced to delve deeper into the mysterious events happening around London.
All of the acting troupes cast of colourful characters are present and correct in this enjoyable tale including the fiery Lawrence Firethorn and his rival Barnaby Gill , although their cantankerous landlord is absent visiting a sick relative in Dunstable and his place is taken by Adam Crowmere who arranges a feast for the actors at the inn.
