A MEDIEVAL world of dirt, sweat, blood and lust is on offer at Rotherham Civic Theatrenext month when the Third Nail Theatre returns to the stage with Paul Webb’s “Four Nights in Knaresborough.”

Part political thriller, part comedy, Four Nights in Knaresborough has been described as historical drama for the Tarantino generation with all the sexual energy, personal traumas and quick humour of an epic lads’ night out.

Little is known about the most famous assassins in British history. On Christmas Day 1170 four knights leave Henry II’s household in Normandy and travel to Canterbury.

In the early evening of 29 December they murder the Archbishop, Thomas Becket. The knights head north, hole up in Knaresborough Castle and wait there in secret for a year.

The four crazy, licentious and powerful killers, abandoned and alone with only the four walls of Knaresborough Castle to protect them from the wrath of the nation, turn to tales of constipation, frustration, hunger, sword-polishing, even love, to while away the hours.

Four Nights in Knaresborough is at Rotherham Civic Theatre on October 6, 7 and 8.
