A traveling troupe of actors in 13th century England finds itself entangled in the politics of a small town. Straying from their usual bible stories -- the only acceptable material for plays -- they perform a recent local murder to enhance ticket sales. As they play the murder night after night, they come to realize the accused murderer is innocent. One of the best things about this book is that it brings you into the setting more than anything I've ever read. It's one of my favorite books of all time.
