Murder by Gaslight : An Evening with Dr Palmer & Dr Crippen

Thurs 23 March 2017 | 7.30pm

Murder by Gaslight is a ghoulish audience with two of most infamous poisoners in British history – William Palmer and Harvey Crippen. We invite you to encounter these murderous men of medicine as the diabolical doctors regale you with their case histories, and invite you to judge for yourselves whether they were in fact, guilty as charged!

Acclaimed actor Jonathan Goodwin plays both William Palmer and Hawley Crippen in this original stage drama, and is joined by Amy Bullock, who plays Mrs Crippen. The play is written by Jonathan Goodwin and directed with ghoulish aplomb by Gary Archer.

Brought to you by Don’t Go Into The Cellar! Theatre – the British Empire’s leading practitioners of macabre Victoriana!

(This event will take place on the Tyne Theatre stage with unreserved seating – part of our 150th Anniversary special events programme!)
