There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

A fast and bloody black comedy that sheds light on four of the most ignored figures in English history – the knights who actually had to kill Thomas Becket.

The four young knights who have just assassinated Thomas Becket take refuge in Knaresborough castle, hoping that the heat will die down. But they're in for a long, hard wait. A severed ear, archaic dentistry and a string of unrequited passions are just a few of the things in store for them in this anarchic historical drama.

Paul Webb's play Four Knights in Knaresborough was first performed at the Tricycle Theatre, London, in 1999.

Press Quotes

'He offers historical drama for the Tarantino generation, full of nervous laughter, sudden violence and expletive-laden dialogue that is often outrageously funny...'
