Enter the Pothecarie.

POTHECARIE. My Lord.

GUISE. Now shall I prove and guerdon to the ful, The love thou bear'st unto the house of Guise: Where are those perfumed gloves which late I sent To be poysoned, hast thou done them? speake, Will every savour breed a pangue of death?

A one act 22 scene play, much bloodier than anything Shakespeare ever wrote. Following the marriage of Catholic Charles the ninth to a Lutheran wife meant to end the sectarian animosity, the Catholic nobles set out to kill every Protestant in Paris. Though the action on stage only concerns the murders of nobles, minor characters appear every now and then to update the survivors about the fighting among the commoners.
There are shootings, poisonings, ear amputations, and lots and lots of stabbings. This must've been an amazing play to see performed.
