Shakespeare, colorThis play was originally believed to be the work of William Shakespeare, but due to recent analysis, Scholars feel fairly certain that it is the work of Thomas Middleton. However, we have also learned that Shakespeare probably had a hand in the development of the work. It played at the Globe and in 1600 Shakespeare was a major owner of The Globe Theater Company.

  1. My 23 year old son and I attended the April 23 performance of A Yorkshire Tragedy. We were fascinated by the play and much struck by the fact that it was a true story that was being presented on stage within a year. To your point that this play is relevant and needs to be seen today-my son pointed out that the same story just happened again. The scion of a prominent and wealthy family throws away the material and social achievements of generations, then kills his wife and child. Within months there is a Netflix special. The Murdaughs.
    Nothing is new under the sun.

    1. Thank you very much for your comments! History, and human tragedies, do repeat themselves, for sure. We’re very happy you enjoyed the show, please tell your friends about us.
