Product description

T. S. Eliot's "Murder in the Cathedral" is both a fascinating retelling of the twelfth-century assassination of Archbishop Thomas Becket and a compelling call for resistance in the face of intimidation. Written against the backdrop of rising Fascism in twentieth-century Europe, Eliot's classic verse play is as relevant now as it ever was. This re-release of the original 1953 recording stars Robert Donat whose commanding performance as the Archbishop, alongside a full cast, is widely celebrated.

Review quote

Murder in the Cathedral revives the awesome 1953 Old Vic performance of Eliot's play about the power struggle between Henry II and Thomas Becket, originally performed in the cathedral itself at the 1935 Canterbury Festival. In it you will hear echoes - 'Humankind cannot bear very much reality' - taken up in 'Burnt Norton'...this was Robert Donat's finest performance. - Christina Hardyment, The Times
