A highly theatrical adaptation of one of Jane Austen's greatest novels.
Pledging never to marry, the mischievous Emma Woodhouse is nevertheless the 'matchmaker of Highbury'.
Her newest project, Harriet Smith, has already received a proposal, but Emma insists she
marry the eligible vicar Mr Elton, while, an older family friend, Mr Knightley, warns her to give up matchmaking.
When Emma discovers Mr Elton is more interested in her, she is forced to fend him off

charming Frank Churchill, and Emma finds herself falling just a little in love with him .....

'Will no-one rid me of this turbulent priest?'

A powerful verse drama, wit elements of Greek tragedy and medieval ritual, Murder in the Cathedral tells the story of
the assassination of Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, at the bidding of King Henry II in 1170.
This is a play which offers a truly theatrical experience for actor and audience alike.  A strong simple set, colour,
sound, music and smell should ensure that all the senses are engaged and the play provides a dramatic platform
for experienced actors working as individuals and part of an ensemble.  The cast of around 20, half men, half women,
varying in age from 20 to 70, will need a capacity for verse speaking, the ability to move well and command the stage.

Full Cast Requirements & Playing Ages To Be Announced
