Murder in the Cathedral in Putney

St Mary’s, Putney Bridge

Something Wicked Theatre are pleased to announce their upcoming performance of T.S. Eliot’s modern classic, in the historic and atmospheric surroundings of St. Mary’s Church in Putney, famous location of the ‘Putney Debates’ held in the seventeenth century during the English Civil War.

Murder in the Cathedral is the poetic dramatization of an equally iconic event in English history, the murder of Thomas Beckett in 1170 by the knights of King Henry II in Canterbury Cathedral. Our 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.
