London Road

Not a book but a document in radical form; a piece of social history; the alternative to the tabloid version: a “verbatim” musical drama based on the exact words of Ipswich people in interviews conducted in the run-up to the arrest and conviction of Steve Wright, the serial killer who murdered six women. London Road focuses on the community rather than the crime, written in verbatim style, the spoken text is reproduced by the performers exactly as recorded in the interviews. The events are not depicted, rather this is an ensemble portrait of a community coming together.  The Independent described London Road as “a bold and imaginative tale of triumph over evil.” “A deeply inventive, bold, life-affirming musical”  Time Out.
