In the autumn of 1888 a monster stalked the streets of the East End of London leaving carnage in his wake. The killer would never be caught and the world would come to know him by his chilling pseudonym, ‘Jack the Ripper’.
Since 2002, retired Murder Squad detective, Trevor Marriott, has been investigating the infamous Whitechapel Murders of 1888. The identity of the killer known only as Jack the Ripper has long remained a mystery but now Trevor’s 21st Century investigation – recently the subject of an international National Geographic TV documentary – has uncovered new evidence pointing to a little known suspect, all of which has challenged the understanding of the case and cast major doubt on accepted but outdated theories. This Saturday, Trevor Marriott will be making a guest appearance at Romford’s new Brookside Theatre to share his investigation with the people of Havering, to raise money for the continued renovation of the Romford War Memorial.
‘An Audience with Jack the Ripper’ is a thrilling opportunity to relive the ultimate murder mystery. This two hour show is packed with information and pictures from 1888 showing original crime scene photographs of the victims and the suspects, together with many other original photographs relating to the murders. This thought-provoking, informative and chilling night out will take place at the Brookside Theatre, Romford this coming Saturday, 2nd February at 8pm. Tickets cost just £10, available from the theatres website, www.brooksidetheatre.com and all money raised will be going into the continued renovation of the Romford War Memorial on Eastern Road.
Please note that original crime scene and post-mortem photographs of a graphic nature will be shown that some people may find disturbing. This event is not for the weak-hearted and not suitable for audiences under the age of 14.
