Barring [the] Fly: The Seventy Four Deaths of Shakepeare's Characters

Tim Crouch is directing a play at the Northampton Royal and Derngate Theatre that includes all 74 human deaths in Shakespeare--the play omits the death of a fly in Titus Andronicus. Reporter Alice Vincent notes that the acculumation of gore "makes Shakespeare's complete works more gory that notorious HBO TV show Game of Thrones, which has scripted 61 deaths in 50 episodes...". Of course, GOT isn't over yet.
