London Road

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

A reimagining of the events that shook a rural Suffolk town in 2006. The residents of London Road, Ipswich had struggled for years with frequent soliciting and kerb-crawling on their street. They were further shattered when the bodies of five murdered women were discovered nearby. When a local resident was charged and then convicted of the murders, the community grappled with what it meant to be at the epicentre of this tragedy.
Using the residents' own words set to an innovative musical score, 'London Road' tells a moving story of ordinary people coming together during the darkest of experiences.
The original musical drama 'London Road' was hailed as a remarkable, ground-breaking work during two sell-out runs at the UK's National Theatre. This feature film adaptation reunites the creative team of Alecky Blythe, Adam Cork and Rufus Norris with the original cast, and also features an ensemble cast of UK acting talent.
