Theatre of Blood

Phelim McDermott, Lee Simpson

PaperBack (30 May 2005)

Seven self-regarding critics assemble at a disused theatre in response to a mysterious invitation. Too late they discover its gruesome purpose as Edward Lionheart, an actor frenzied by a lifetime of sneering reviews, hacks his revengeful way through the bloody works of Shakespeare, assisted by a gang of murderous tramps.
The laws of theatre supersede the laws of physics in this macabre exhibition of putty noses, Kensington gore and some very large acting indeed.

Theatre of Blood was produced by Improbable Theatre in collaboration with the National Theatre, starring Jim Broadbent, in May 2005.
