When a famous Shakespearean actor starts to misspeak in Hamlet, Sir Edward knows his career could be in jeopardy, but never wonders if destiny might be knocking. Not too far away, Cambridge scholar Dame Elizabeth experiences several lucid dreams on Shakespeare and Elizabethan England, which she is loath to share with her physicist husband Erik. Sensing meaning in her dreams as well as in those places where Sir Edward misspeaks, Dame Elizabeth takes up the investigation after she herself is strangely upstaged at a book festival in Arizona. As the trail on Shakespeare's sonnets leads to southern France and the medieval troubadours, Elizabeth suggests her husband Erik follow their example and write her a love poem. He reluctantly does so, yet they both are enthralled by the power of courtly love that swept Europe in the Middle Ages. From London's Fleet Street to the Tucson Book Festival, to the creativity of Cambridge University's own students, Shakespeare and the God Virus unfolds the playwright's mysterious experiences that he struggled to describe in his sonnets. Join British author Erik Eriksson for a Shakespearean drama on "the divinity that shapes our ends, rough-hew them how we will."
