Murder - Just What The Doctor Ordered

Presented by ISOSCELES

In Edinburgh between 1827 and 1828 science and murder cling together in a dance of death. Sixteen people are murdered by Burke and Hare.

Doctor Robert Knox, scientist, doctor, and anatomist supreme, waits in Surgeons Square to buy bodies for the sake of advancing medical knowledge. A body is delivered, money is paid and no questions are asked. A trail of terror leads to the dissection table of Doctor Knox. Murder will out and a price must be paid. Knox will have to pay that price.

This specially commissioned play has toured all over these islands to enormous success.
