Lucy Worsley’s popular theatre tour of ‘A Very British Murder’ comes to an end on Guy Fawkes Night in Newcastle-under-Lyme with almost another sell out auditorium.
In ‘A Very British Murder’, Lucy shares secrets and explores the history of this phenomenon in forensic detail, examining not only the crimes themselves but also how murder became a form of middle-class entertainment through novels, plays, artifacts and the press. From a Regency serial killer to Agatha Christie, this is the story of how crime was turned into art.
“An excellent overview of how the consumption of crime became a dominant part of our cultural landscape.” - The Sunday Times
