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.
