Burke and Hare

A hectic, pitch-black and wickedly funny comedy by Tom Wentworth

Monday, March 4th, 2024


Saturday, March 9th, 2024

There’s an awful lot of bodies in Edinburgh, they’re just not dead yet.”

In Edinburgh’s back streets and alleys, there’s an absolute killing to be made. The first rule of business? Supply and demand. With surgeons crying out for fresh bodies to dissect there’s a huge demand for bodies, just inconveniently few deaths. Burke and Hare however, have spotted a lucrative gap in the market... As the infamous pair flourish in their new careers, the more they murder, the less they care. But for how long will they get away with it? With just three actors and over 50 characters, this promises to be hectic, pitch-black and wickedly funny.
