Alexander Pope and Lewis Theobald square off in the 18th Century over how best to save Shakespeare’s scripts, which had become difficult to understand due to old printing techniques and changes in the language. In the meanwhile, Sophocles’ Electra drops by as she awaits the return of her brother, Orestes.
