Tough Theatre's A Yorkshire Tragedy at White Bear 5 Jan
Tough Theatre production of A Yorkshire Tragedy, will be at the White Bear Theatre, a Fringe venue in south London, from 5 to 24 Jan 2010.
The play was originally assigned to William Shakespeare, though the modern critical consensus rejects this attribution, favoring Thomas Middleton.
It is directed by Andy Brunskill.
A man on the brink of financial and, subsequently, social ruin resorts to tragic means to defend the honour of his family.
The play is based on a real life scandal of the day. On 5 August 1605 Walter Calverley was executed for murdering two of his children and stabbing his wife. Similar tragedies have occured throughout historyright up to present day. Are these people just plain evil or products of society?
