Burke and Hare runs at Jermyn Street Theatre from Wednesday 28 November to Saturday 21 December 


William Burke and William Hare hit on a new money-making scheme. The first rule of business? Supply and demand. In the leading city for medical research, there’s a huge demand for bodies and inconveniently few deaths. The profitable solution? Murder, of course. As the infamous pair flourish in their new careers, the more they murder, the less they care. But for how long will they get away with it?

Three actors take on a host of vivid characters in this black comedy that is as hysterical as it is historical.
