THE WOMEN OF WHITECHAPEL: A Musical in the Shadows
Oskarshamn, Sweden Teen (2012)
In partnership with RUM
In London’s impoverished district of Whitechapel in 1888, the murder of a prostitute was lucky to receive any media coverage at all. But when a methodical killer with surgical precision and a penchant for taunting investigators strikes the women of East End, a new breed of fear is born. The city of London has created a monster- Jack the Ripper. The Women of Whitechapel is a thrilling race against the clock to crack the case before another victim is claimed. It is our take on history’s most infamous murder mystery.
