Jack the Ripper
by Ron Pember and Denis de Marne
Wolverton Gilbert & Sullivan Society
Set partly in a music hall and partly in the surrounding East End London streets and buildings, the play is a musical reconstruction of incidents relating to the East End murders which took place between August 31st and 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.
