Counterfeit! is a new play by the Ottawa Baroque Consort, with actor Pierre Brault. Coining is high treason in 17th century England, and the penalty is death by hanging. But William Chaloner is no ordinary criminal. His counterfeit coins are so good that they rival - and some say surpass - the quality of those made at the Royal Mint. Who can stop him? England chooses its foremost leading thinker and famous scientist: Sir Isaac Newton, in the role of Warden of the Mint. Can one brilliant mind outwit another? Find out May 11th! A true story, portrayed as a theatrical drama, with live music by the Ottawa Baroque Consort.
