About This Show
The nearly forgotten story of a southern Episcopal bishop murdered by one of his own peers in 1928 surfaces this summer at the historic Dock Street Theatre, less than a hundred feet away from where the incident occurred.
Thomas Tisdale’s original play, Truth in Cold Blood, dramatizes for the first time the story of the shooting and death of Bishop William Alexander Guerry and the events leading up to it. Tisdale and director Richard Futch talk about the play and the history behind it.
