Richard Haines, director, chose to do this show because tales of terror inflame people’s imaginations – and especially at Hallowe’en.


The terrifying true story of the London serial killer who was never caught becomes, in this version, a comedy. As Richard said in his program note, “I can think of more fun way to celebrate Hallowe’en than by pulling out the best spook of them all, and laughing at him now.”
