Musical tale of Jack the Ripper an atmospheric commentary

Jack The Ripper – A Musical Tale  is a musical reconstruction of incidents relating to the East End murders which took place between Friday, August 31st and Friday, November 9th, 1888.

A solution of Jack the Ripper’s identity is hinted at, but the play is an atmospheric commentary rather than an historical re-enactment, shifting between reality and artificiality, with characters representing “real” people as well as members of the music hall audience and players.  All this is laced with memorable songs and humour.
