Play reading - Four Nights in Knaresborough
written by Paul Corcoran
A pacey and bloody black comedy; written in modern language; with an abundance of profanity and slang!
7pm for 7.30pm
After successfully staging Hamlet In St Leonard’s Church in September 2018, the church have asked STC to consider performing another production. As it’s vital to choose a play that works in this unique setting, we are considering Four Nights in Knaresborough by Paul Corcoran (now known as Paul Webb).
In 1170, King Henry II ordered four of his knights to kill Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury, as the king believed that Thomas showed more loyalty to the church than to him. Following the assassination, the knights went into hiding in Knaresborough Castle, North Yorkshire, waiting for the heat to die down. With sudden violence, edgy action and a genuine medieval feel, this play is a new perspective on the assassination, and is much sparkier and full of action than T.S. Eliot’s Murder in the Cathedral or Anouilh’s Becket.
Join us to read, listen and share your views on this play.

Sisters in the Snow by Holly Johnson
Directed by Helen Mason
“Art is long, life is short”
'Sisters' is a magical tale of sibling rivalry, time travel, love and the power of art. Written by American Playwright Holly Johnson, the play is set in Vienna and inspired by Bruegel’s famous painting Hunters in the Snow.
Join us at Vinters for an evening amidst the Flemish lowlands, where cultures connect, and the usual rules of science and time don’t apply. Escape to a winter snowscape and enjoy a glass of wine and a slice of Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte mit schlag.
