Murder in the Cathedral
8pm, Fri 17th - Sat 18th Nov @ Selwyn College Chapel
England, 1170. Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, has returned after seven years of exile. In the company of his clergy he presses on homeward, met by a multitude of voices telling him to turn back. But Becket will not be stopped, and religion and politics are about to collide in a shocking act of violence.
