Thursday 1st :: To Die, To Sleep … Ay, There’s the Rub!

There’s more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy Tarantino! So goes the thinking behind Shakespeare’s Reservoir Dogs… “In Elizabethan London, six knights – perfect strangers to one another – are hired to rob a case of precious jewels from a coach on it’s way to the King. After their robbery is thwarted, the brigands realize that one of them must secretly be an officer in disguise. But which one?” Can you really afford to miss this?!
