About this show

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 theater supersede the laws of physics in this macabre exhibition of putty noses, Kensington gore, and some very large acting indeed in Theatre of Blood.
