Capital Punishment on Trial

Every day, various times


Put capital punishment on trial in our theatre of law

Do you think capital punishment has a place in today's society?

In this fascinating courtroom performance, we put capital punishment on trial. Our team of professional storytellers will take on the roles of notorious executioners William Calcraft, Jack Ketch or Albert Pierrepoint as well as Violet van der Elst who campaigned for the abolishment of capital punishment. Hear as they argue their case and contribute to the debate before casting your vote... should we bring back capital punishment?
