The music of Nick Cave has inspired a new production by Professor Gerry Smyth which will be running at the Royal Court Theatre in Liverpool this Halloween.

Based on Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’s cult album, Murder Ballads is a darkly comic tale of madness, horror and death set in a Texan bar in the winter of 1882.

Perfect for anyone who loves Cave or who is looking to get into the Halloween spirit, Murder Ballads runs from October 31st to 2 November. Further information and bookings are available here.
