Burke and Hare
BURKE AND HARE
Dramaturg: Tobias Smith
How many times can one actor get killed during one performance? Find out in this brand new comedy based on the infamous tale of William Burke and William Hare. The murderers who sold their victims' corpses for anatomical research get the Jenny Wren treatment - three actors playing all parts and maybe, just maybe, stretching the truth. Quite a lot. In fact, Burke and Hare has a hysterical, rather than historical, basis. From the company that brought you The Hound of the Baskervilles, Oliver Twist and, most recently, Twelfth Night, expect many murders, many men called William and many more accents.
