Friends Talk - Chris Wood


Time: 5pm
Newcastle Theatre Royal, The Olivier Suite.
Tickets: Friends £4.00, Guests £4.50

Britain’s theatrical wonderland has been a cornerstone of culture for centuries, delighting and thrilling audiences with an assemblage of exhilarating spectacles.
Beyond the trodden boards and tucked neatly behind the curtain however, lies a catalogue of real life destruction and grisly murder. Death in the Theatre collects an astonishing selection of startling tragedies from Britain’s throng of theatres.

There is something especially staggering when the player exits life on their adorned stage, and yet death has made many a fearful cameo appearance; stalking the stalls and grimly reaping the galleries in its macabre and relentless fashion. Learn of some of the outrageous tragedies to have occurred within British – and more specifically – our North East theatres.

This is Chris Wood’s second book, and one that combines his passion for both theatre and all things morbid! Chris lives with his wife Charlotte in Morpeth, Northumberland, and when away from his desk, is usually trying to convince their five year old daughter that his books are not boring. Something he is yet to persuade her of!
