Call Backed: 5 Thespians, 1 Director, 1 Stage Manager and 1 Understudy
The tides of death had changed with but one name murmured: Kyrsa. One by one all lights dimmed until a sole spotlight remained on the fair woman and Producer; a moment later it turned crimson as the noose fell down about her neck and the hinges of the hidden door beneath her began to creak to life.
"What, drawn, and talk of peace! I hate the word,
As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee:
Have at thee, coward!"
Shrieks sounded through the theater, Tybalt's words echoing as the door gave way and Kyrsa was no more, her last breath taken with the noose's cinch. What fluttered from her pocket, however, was not a note of secrets between villains but one of set changes and lighting cues, for the woman destined to portray Tybalt, who had been named among her peers as the Producer, had also been the Director and savior of the Thespians.
Without their guardian the Thespians were now more than ever at risk from the remaining Understudy.
