Calum Beaton & Pab Roberts in 'Desk Job' by Paul Bishop

October 2010

If you think you know the story of Burke and Hare, think again. For its latest collaboration, Siege Perilous has teamed up with fellow Edinburgh-based theatre company West Port Productions to stage ‘Burke’ its first historical, fact-based production at the GRV in November. 'Burke' is a poignant haunting psychological drama which delves into the mind of notorious serial killer William Burke as he awaits his execution, and uses accounts from his 2-day trial in 1828. This is not however, a simple retelling of the 16 murders he committed with partner William Hare.Burke & Hare take to the stage
