“All things prepare the event.

Watch.”

Murder in the Cathedral shows the ultimate struggle of Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, an outspoken and courageous priest, silenced for daring to speak out against the king. Witness the assassination of Becket in a beautiful, immersive setting and feel his demons, the darkness and sense of doom ushered in by an iron-fisted monarch.

Written in 1935 by T.S. Eliot, one of the twentieth century’s most innovative poets, this take on Becket’s death has contemporary echoes and warnings for our time.

Scena Mundi’s new staging in stunning cathedral settings coincides with the 850th anniversary of the real murder of Thomas Becket and immerses audiences in the pageant of suspense, murder and passion.

Scena Mundi Theatre Company produce faithful, innovative stagings of classical plays, with an ethos built on respect of both the text and our discerning modern audience.

 

PRODUCTIONS

At the heart of what we do are our large-scale, site-specific ensemble productions of classical plays. From Shakespeare to Wilde, our 'stunning', 'superb' and 'mesmerising' performances range from the 'steadfastly historical' to 'in-your-face' and 'visually striking'. Alongside these, we have recently launched Scena Mundi FORUM, a series of dramatised readings followed by an open-floor discussion with guest
speakers.

PRIVATE HIRE

Launched in 2016, The Mechanicals are the new Masters of Concise Comedy, delighting audiences from London private members' clubs to the Isle of Wight's Ventnor Exchange Festival. They are available for Private Hire and provide the perfect entertainment for the most cultured of party hosts. We also offer bespoke readings and entertainment for any occasion.
