Isosceles Theatre Company presents Murder – Just What the Doctor Ordered.

In Edinburgh Between 1827 and 1828 science and murder cling together in a dance of death. Sixteen people are slaughtered by Burke and Hare and the devil and all his works prowls the streets of ‘Auld Reekie’. Dr Robert Knox, scientist, doctor and anatomist supreme, waits in Surgeons Square to buy bodies for the sake of  advancing medical knowledge.

His door is chapped, a body is delivered, money is paid and no questions are asked. A trail of terror leads from West Port to the dissection table of Robert Knox.  Murder will out and a price must be paid, even by the anatomist supreme. Doctor Knox will have to pay that price.

‘ A thought-provoking performance …. the play was brilliantly acted ….  Bravo Isosceles ! A superb show, highly recommended. ‘ Dumfries and Galloway Life.
