A production of T.S. Eliot’s Murder in the Cathedral, originally scheduled for the summer, is to take place in St. Mary's Church, Putney.

The Something Wicked Theatre production of the modern classic is to be staged in the famous location of the ‘Putney Debates’ held by Oliver Cromwell in the seventeenth century during the English Civil War.

Murder in the Cathedral is the poetic dramatisation of an equally iconic event in English history, the murder of Thomas Becket in 1170 by the knights of King Henry II in Canterbury Cathedral. The play, directed by award-winning director, Adam Morley, and performed by trained actors, will focus strongly on the medieval context, making the most of this ancient church setting, using natural lighting and contemporary music to enhance the actors’ performance.

The play will now take place from October 8th to 11th. Tickets cost £14 or £10 for concessions and are available by calling 0333 666 3366. They can also be bought online but a booking fee applies.

A medieval-style meal will be offered to complement the performance (tickets purchased separately £12; joint ticket (theatre/meal) £22). For more information about the meal, contact Putney Pantry on 0208 789 1137 or info@putneypantry.com.
