Jack The Ripper: The Victims at Blue Orange Theatre, 118 Great Hampton St, Jewellery Quarter, B18 6AD 

 

Blue Orange Theatre is an independent theatre located in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham.

This is the story of the five women brutally murdered in Whitechapel, London.

An all female cast focus on the stories of the five canonical victims of Jack the Ripper highlighting their senseless and cruel slayings and depicting the depravity and violence which formed part of the daily lives of the residents of Whitehall.
Naturalistic dialogue contrast with a fast-paced stylistic story telling approach and moments of brutal violence making this a telling not to be missed.

The show starts at 7.45pm, meet at the bar from 7pm.

The show is on all week however please book for the 1st November 7.45pm show on the link below. Tickets cost £10-£12.
