Book review: Unauthorised History: The Killing by Michael Butt


Unauthorised History: The KillingUnauthorised History: The Killing by Michael Butt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In May 1593, the playwright Christopher Marlowe was killed. Apparently, it was because of an argument over a bill. Michael Butt’s innovative drama dons the cloak of documentary to re-examine the unsolved case.
