"T.S. Eliot, one of the finest poets in the English language, wrote Murder in the Cathedral as he was questioning his own religious faith," director Greg Reilly explains. "The tale of Becket’s rift with King Henry has been a staple of English lore since his murder in 1170, and Eliot’s portrayal show’s Becket’s temptations and flaws in poetic and often clever verse. It has an almost Shakespearean feel to it." The play is set in the round, a first for the Osborne Theater. "This is a challenging play for any actor or director, and I wanted a way to show off the wide range of talent that UCCS has to offer by raising the bar even higher by setting it in the round," Reilly explains.
