Blood and Stone

Listen with headphones for the full 3D experience

Blood and Stone

Based on the true story of Countess Elizabeth Bathory, perhaps one of the greatest mass murderers of all time. She was a woman who tortured and killed over 600 young women for their blood.

Too noble to be executed, in 1610 the 'Bloody Lady of Cachtice' was bricked up in a set of rooms in her own castle in Slovakia. Why then should the young and beautiful Katya be at the castle door attracting the close attention of the gaoler and wanting a job looking after Countess? Is it revenge or some more ghostly visit from Bathory's past? And if she should help her escape....

REDDER THAN ROSES

A Wireless Theatre LIVE Recording

Redder_Than_Roses_small

We're delighted to be returning to The Buxton Festival again in July 2014 with Marty Ross's The Woman on the Bridge.

Redder Than Roses

No British monarch was more glamorous than Mary Queen of Scots. No one was more spellbound by her than the French poet Chastelard.
.
But as he yearns for an intimacy impossible given Mary's position – especially under the watchful eye of the puritanical Earl of Moray – Chastelard is driven to ever more desperate measures.
.
Celebrity stalker? Poet uncompromising in quest of beauty? Decide for yourself, in an intimate drama with all the intensity of Renaissance tragedy recorded live at the Lee Wood Hotel as part of the Buxton Festival.

BURKE AND HARE, PART 1

By Terence Newman

bh
"Great stuff, atmospheric, well scripted with light and dark touches and a great, competent cast!!"
Mark Everton

Burke and Hare, Part One

This is the story of the infamous 19th Century Scottish Grave-robbers who weren’t Scottish and didn’t rob graves. They were actually Irish and as robbing graves to supply the needs of Edinburgh’s anatomists proved to be rather hard work, they just took to murdering people – usually their neighbours – for profit.
.
In collaboration with their common-law wives they set about supplying corpses for Dr John Knox an eminent Scottish surgeon with considerable enthusiasm and gusto. The play follows their business exploits from small beginnings, through their days of peak output to the final reckoning - set against a world that is becoming recognisably modern.

Starring : Rob Crouch, Jonathan Clarkson, Genevieve Swallow, Holly McLay, Clive Greenwood, Neil McCormack and Adam Hall
