Everyone has heard of Jack the Ripper. Nearly everyone knows that he terrorised London in 1888. His name even echoes today in the TV dramas Whitechapel and Ripper Street. As this terrible episode of history continues to drip into the present, do we really know what happened? Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper paints a vivid portrait of the life Londoners led during the days of invincible empire and the dreadful social conditions that lurked within inches of all the pomp and glory.
The play tells of the often over-looked victims. We know the end of their story, but do we know the rest?
The music of the era is woven throughout the piece and we are brought face to face with:
The facts The terror The witnesses The victims The police The truth … at last!
