CURATING LUXURY FOR THE DISCERNING TRAVELLER

Last Chance to See: Burke & Hare

Last Chance to See: Burke & Hare

Robert Boulton descends into the dark and comical world of Burke & Hare at the Jermyn Street Theatre

Heading from the ground level to the tiny theatre adds to the whole experience – the narrow tunnel gives Jermyn Street Theatre so much of its theatrical transportation and charm. Emerging, guests are greeted by Toots Butcher’s wonderful stage design. Creating a playground for actors to convincingly transport the audience at points between a tavern, a town square, a mortuary and a courthouse at breakneck pace is a difficult one, yet one that she achieves with macabre and gothic aplomb.
