'Disposing of the Body'    

'Murder in the Cathedral' 

Thur 18th - Sat 20th March 2010

Various churches around Spalding

... powerfully                  staged...

Note from the Director ...



Written for the 1935 Canterbury Festival , Murder In The Cathedral was instantly acclaimed as one of the great plays of the twentieth century. It was also recognised as one of the most difficult because of the poetic nature of the script and political intrigue of spiritual versus temporal struggle. This was highlighted at the time when the rise of fascism and communism once more brought competition between Church and State to the fore.


It is a very challenging script for an actor, and I am very grateful to the cast and to Jo Dobbs, the producer and all the production team for the efforts and contributions they have made to this production. All of them have approached the script with imagination and enthusiasm.


We feel very privileged to be performing in three of the most beautiful Churches in the area and thank the Priests and Churchwardens for their help in allowing us to bring a special ambience to the performance.
