Jessica was a member of a company of actors from the year AD 2066. She and her colleagues travelled to London to perform Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead at a celebration of its centennial. For reasons unknown, she and the company were sent back to the year 1606. She and the company saw acting as their only means of survival, and so began performing plays, such as Tom Stoppard's absurdist play, centuries before they were written. Jessica played Gertrude.
William Shakespeare attended a performance, convinced that some contemporary had stolen from his play Hamlet. However, he came to appreciate Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead and the commentary it made about Hamlet and the conventions of theatre in general. He went back stage and met with the company, who revealed their origins. Jessica then added to Shakespeare's sensory overload by quoting a sonnet he had not yet written, and then lightly kissing him.
