An article about ARDEN in The Brooklyn Paper says:

“Originally written in 1592 — some say by William Shakespeare — “Arden” is the story of an extremely wealthy English landowner who was murdered in 1551 by hit men hired by his wife and her lover. In 1793, another version of the Thomas Arden story was written by playwright George Lillo and titled “Arden of Feversham.”
Naomi Village: In the heart of the Poconos

Horne and director Michelle Salerno collaborated on a new adaptation, cobbling together pieces of the old plays and giving the whole thing a modern flair. In their version, Thomas Arden is the owner of Arden Properties, a big DUMBO real-estate firm.”
