This new black comedy is as hysterical as it is historical.


Following last year's uproarious The Hound of the Baskervilles, three actors once again take on a host of vivid characters.


Synopsis


1828, Edinburgh.


William Burke and William Hare hit on a new money-making scheme.


The first rule of business?


Supply and demand.


In the leading city for medical research, there's a huge demand for bodies and inconveniently few deaths.


The profitable solution?


Murder, of course.


As the infamous pair flourish in their new careers, the more they murder, the less they care.


But for how long will they get away with it?
