Who wrote it? What was its original title?

Cold as Death features an evil tyrant, sexual betrayal, and necrophilia.

The Second Maiden’s Tragedy exists only as a handwritten manuscript. George Buc, King James’ censor, described it as “This second Maiden's Tragedy (for it hath no name inscribed)…”
Although usually attributed to Thomas Middleton, its authorship is uncertain. Monique LaForce has trimmed away the subplot, combined several characters and created a dark, action-packed drama titled Cold as Death.
