In a subplot, Violetta's cousin Penelope (Mr.Worthy's daughter) is in love with Master Fowler, (A wild young Gentleman [Marlowe?]): even though she knows him to be a libertine who will use her and abandon her if he can. Penelope schemes to lead him to the altar instead. She manipulates Fowler into attending his own false funeral, where he hears his sordid life recounted; and he imagines how it would be if the funeral were real. Penelope confronts him, as a man "dead" to his nobler nature; as she seems about to renounce him, Fowler repents and promises to reform if she will accept him as her husband.
There can be litte doubt that act V / Scene I- III is not purely fictional but reveals something very authentical: The hearse of Mr Fowler and Fowler himself alive enter the little room [in Deptford], where by report, he dyed, reflecting he [officially] is dead.- No reckonings to be paid with it, no Taverne bills and many more signicant details such as the false servants [Poley, Frizer, Skeres] of some great man [W.Cecil] etc. etc.- But not only the faked death of Marlowe but also the death (departure) of his deare brother [Shakspere] who died shorthly after making his will  and had a Monument in a conspicious place of the Church [Stratford] where we can see him but not knowing him...etc.etc.---
In John Cotgraves: "The English Treasury of Wit and Language" on page 34/35, you find the identical monologue of James Shirley's Master Fowler but with another conspicious conclusion:
"If a man does not erect (in this Age) his own Tomb before he dies , he shall live no longer in Monuments..........if his Consience find no impediment to the contrary, to be Trumpet of his own vertues."
