Butcher, The Thief And The Buyer Of Beef, The

Synopsis:
This play is the true story of the West Port Murders that took place in Edinburgh, Scotland in the late 1820s. Sometimes referred to as grave robbers, Burke and Hare actually murdered approximately 18 people and sold their bodies to medical science. Other plays on the subject were written by James Birdie and Dylan Thomas; they focus on the doctor. This piece focuses on William Burke, a tragic anti-hero. William Hare and his wife are manipulating villains who seduce Burke and his common-law wife into committing murder for hire. These culprits, who spend their earnings on whiskey, have a human side that leads them to commit murder carelessly. Ultimately, after being betrayed by Hare, Burke hangs for the crimes of all four murderers.

Yatata

Synopsis:
This play is set in a fictitious kingdom in the alps. King Herendus has three wives and a son of marrying age. When he hears of a new princess who is available for marriage he sends his son out to hunt and decides to pursue the princess himself. Little does he know that a young traveler is also heading to her kingdom in search of her hand. Herendus decides to imprison the traveler when he is discovered passing through Yatata. The story is filled with intrigue and inter-relationships involving such diverse characters as a Ghost who haunts the theatre and his poltergeist daughter who tries to disrupt his storytelling and attempts to play God, a fool who wanders into the plot only to become a priest, and a large muscular knight who is anything but slow witted. Each member of the royal court has their own unique talent. How will the twists, turns, and battles manifest? This one keeps you guessing until the final twist.
