On the 29th of September, Scotland Yard received an infamous letter. “Dear boss,” it read. A gruesome note written in red ink that detailed the plans of a notorious figure, a figure who to this day remains unknown… signed, “Yours truly, Jack the Ripper.“
Step into the night that follows as a citizen of Victorian Whitechapel. The streets of Whitechapel are haunted by an unseen man, the people consumed by fear and hysteria.

Whitechapel: Suspects, Lunatics and a Leather Apron had two sold out runs from October to November 2016, and May to June 2017. Guests were taken back to September 29th 1888, a night two murders shook London's East End.
In this immersive theatre show, guests stepped back into this night as a Victorian Londoner, taking on a role as either a H-Division officer, a member of the Whitechapel Vigilance Committee or as a impoverished citizen of the time.
Over the course of an hour and a half, guests weaved through the story and participated as the events of the night unfolded.
