In the backstreets of Edinburgh in 1828 there’s a killing to be made. Scientific research Hares on apace, the surgeons are crying out for fresh bodies to dissect, and you’d need to be a right Burke not to spot a gap in the market. And it’s only a small step from robbing graves, to helping people into them…

Three versatile actors, supplied with an array of hats, a variety of disguises and an extraordinary collection of accents play the entire cast of this notorious story – living and (soon to be) dead. Music, murder and mayhem combine in Tom Wentworth’s breathless take on this infamous double act, playing fast and loose with the facts to create a full blooded evening’s entertainment which is more hysterical than historical.

Age guidance 12+ Parental discretion advised.
