Set between 1598 and 1600, the play recounts the downfall of the Earl of Essex, once the aging Queen Elizabeth I's greatest favourite in the light of the differing attitudes of brothers Anthony and Francis Bacon towards Essex as their patron. Anthony served in the feudal manner, bound forever to his lord, right or wrong. Francis, the contemporary thinker, limited his allegiance and served save his loyalty to Queen and state. He finally stops supporting Essex during his trial for treason and it is Francis' skill as a prosecutor that leads to a guilty verdict and results in Essex being beheaded.
