Thomas Timewell – sixteen and a gentleman – is just trying to do the right thing. His grandfather’s dying wish was to have his body left to science. He goes to the graveyard in the dark of night, to dig up the coffin and retrieve his grandfather’s body. Here he meets Plentitude – a resurrectionist, or ‘body snatcher’, who makes money selling corpses to medical researchers. Little does Thomas realise that just trying to do the right thing will lead to pursuit by cutt-throats, a mysterious tattooed gypsy and, even, the Grim Reaper. This macabre comedy – set in England in 1828 – is both bizarre and hilarious!
