A vivid exploration of the fundamental contradiction of martyrdom.
Though best known for his poetry, T.S. Eliot was also an accomplished playwright. Murder in the Cathedral is a beautiful, haunting poetic take on the martyrdom of Archbishop Thomas Becket in 1170. Becket sees his death coming, but embraces it. This strange duality – a martyr’s death as both tragic and glorious – serves as the basis for the action.
