T. S. Eliot's "Murder in the Cathedral" is both a fascinating retelling of the twelfth-century assassination of Archbishop Thomas Becket and a compelling call for resistance in the face of intimidation.
Written against the backdrop of rising Fascism in twentieth-century Europe, Eliot's classic verse play is as relevant now as it ever was.
This re-release of the original 1953 recording stars Robert Donat whose commanding performance as the Archbishop, alongside a full cast, is widely celebrated.
