Description

Join the Treasures of the Brotherton Gallery and the students from stage@leeds company for a unique rehearsed reading.

Discover a rarely performed slice of Yorkshire history. Join the Treasures of the Brotherton Gallery and the students from the University of Leeds stage@leeds company for a unique experience as they perform a rehearsed reading of A Yorkshire Tragedie.

A Yorkshire Tragedie, written by Thomas Middleton, but long attributed to William Shakespeare, tells the 1605 story of Walter Calverley, who killed his two young sons and stabbed his wife.

A rare copy of A Yorkshire Tragedie is currently on display in the 'For All Time: Shakespeare in Yorkshire' exhibition at the Treasures of the Brotherton Gallery.
