Welcome to Jack the Ripper's Asylum! Jack the Ripper In the Autumn of 1888 five prostitutes in an area known as Whitechapel became victims of the killer we now call Jack the Ripper. This is Saucy Jacky's unofficial playground... Check out the discussions, chats, fun and games with like-minded inmates in an attempt to get into the mind and place of Britain's most notorius serial killer... Ha ha. Catch us if you can Mr. Lusk.
Eight little whores, with no hope of heaven, Gladstone may save one, then there'll be seven. Seven little whores beggin for a shilling, One stays in Henage Court, then there's a killing. Six little whores, glad to be alive, One sidles up to Jack, then there are five. Four and whore rhyme aright, So do three and me, I'll set the town alight Ere there are two. Two little whores, shivering with fright, Seek a cosy doorway in the middle of the night. Jack's knife flashes, then there's but one, And the last one's the ripest for Jack's idea of fun.

Dear Ripperologists,

I'm the writer and composer of the much anticipated musical RIP. I think you'd all love it and am please to say it is the first staged Ripper story to break into the main stream of London's west end. Tickets available at the King's Head Theatre, Islington, London, website.

by Sonnie Beckett.
Music by Sonnie beckett and Joe Morrow. Produced by Grindstone. Directed by Hannah Kaye.

“This is the story of five women, whose names, unlike Jack’s, I am sure you have all forgotten...”

Following a hugely successful showcase at the world famous St Paul’s Actors Church, Covent Garden in April, RIP has been snapped up by the prestegious King’s Head Theatre for a run throughout July 2013. With only eight performances be sure not to miss out. Preview 30th June, 7:15 p.m. Press night 1st July, 7:15 p.m. Evenings 7th, 8th, 14th, 15th, and 21st July, 7:15 p.m. Matinee 21st July, 3:00 p.m.

Who was Jack the Ripper? It’s a question that has gone unanswered for 125 years and, in all probability, will remain unanswered. In recent years there have been many attempts to stage plays and musicals about Jack the Ripper, some more successful than others, but none have ever done it quite like this.

Whitechapel, 1888. The most infamous serial killer of all time has brutally murdered five women. Their mutilated bodies lie in a cold morgue ready for dissection and their souls remain in perpetual limbo as they witness their own post-mortems and desperately wait for justice to prevail.

Police surgeons, Dr Phillips and Dr Bond, guide us through this world of secrets, where no stone is left unturned!

Told through song and taken from the writings of the people who knew these women best, RIP will have you clinging to your seats and singing all the way home.

This raw piece of new British theatre features a strong ensemble cast, mostly consisting of up and coming young actresses, is written by a woman, directed by a woman and finally gives a voice to the women in the Ripper story that so often get over looked.

If you are missing BBC's 'Ripper Street' or you like a gritty musical this is the show for you. Be sure not to miss out.
