It is 1888. A long-dormant and ungodly terror is soon to be awakened in Victorian London.
‘Jekyll – The Ripper’ is the latest production from talented theatre company ‘Don’t Go Into The Cellar’, who are returning to the Bookmark Bloxwich Theatre in Elmore Row, Bloxwich, Walsall on Saturday 13th October with their classic yet highly-original spine-tingling and spooky tale of Victorian horror to get you in the Hallowe’en mood!
Victorian chills and Steampunk collide in this macabre re-imagining of the legendary Robert Louis Stevenson tale and the infamous crimes of the Whitechapel Ripper!
Stuart Williams of Bloxwich Library Forum, which manages the theatre in partnership with Bloxwich Library, said: “Our good friends ‘Don’t Go Into The Cellar’, who last wowed local audiences in Sherlockian style with ‘Holmes Alone’, are all set to give a classic blood-curdling performance as they stalk the Bloxwich stage, intent on combining fearful frights with hair-standing hilarity as they reveal the untold secret story behind the mystery of Jack the Ripper!
“This fun-and-fright-filled play is the ideal start to the Hallowe’en season, and surely not to be missed!”
7.00pm doors open for a 7.30pm performance start, and there will be a bar.
