CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)


1888 archiveSet against the vibrant, chaotic and colourful backdrop of London, horrific incidents occurred during the hot summer of 1888 that gripped the East End from Whitechapel to the 'Bohemia' of Hoxton. Behind a series of events, which almost brought this mighty metropolis to the brink of imploding in a social and media fuelled frenzy of fear and dread, hid the face of someone who was to become one of history's most infamous serial killers. Detective Constable John Beck and house maid Rosie Walker, two young lovers who themselves are forced to confront their own demons, must work together in an attempt to end a spree of carnage that would challenge and ultimately change the face and attitudes of this great city forever. 1888 a dark era of change...

Music Gerry Ware. Lyrics Gerry Ware. Book by Gerry Ware.
