Jack the Ripper

As one critic summed up the original production of the show in 1974, 'If you like a good knees-up and a comic celebration of the sleazy side of Victoriana then Jack the Ripper is sure to entertain'!

Whilst the show's title suggests a bloodfest, what you will see is very different. This is a musical version of incidents relating to the murders in London's East End between August and November 1888. The identity of the Ripper is hinted at but the show is a humorous stage melodrama and atmospheric commentary on life at the time and is definitely not an historical re-enactment. The action is set in the Steam packet music hall and in the surrounding streets and is performed by the inhabitants of Whitechapel.

The street scenes depict the day-to-day lifestyle of Victorian East London with the only relief from the daily grind being Saturday night at the music hall. There, everyone could enjoy singing, dancing, satirical sketches and even a speciality magic act, which enabled them to forget, albeit briefly, the terror stalking their streets. In the music hall they would poke fun at their own situation and at the establishment, in particular the police for the way they handled the murders, but even Queen Victoria was not safe from their wit and East End humour.

The Whitechapel residents speculate both on how the name Jack the Ripper came about and his identity. Was it the butcher, the sailor, the Duke of Clarence, or even a girl?!

The varied music includes catchy, foot-tapping chorus numbers, comic songs, refined music hall melodies and poignant ballads; there is something for everyone to enjoy.
