Yours Truly

A Jack the Ripper Story

by Albert Belz

Directed by Simon Boyes

For the first time since 2006, this multi-Chapman Tripp theatre award winning play is being brought to the Wellington stage. Written by acclaimed New Zealand playwright Albert Belz, Yours Truly is his take on the infamous Jack the Ripper’s murderous “Autumn of Terror” in London in 1888.

Yours Truly is a Gothic love story of betrayal, sacrifice and sexual politics. When a Prince of England falls in love, the gates of Hell are flung open and the Devil stalks the streets of London, killing and viciously mutilating women. Only an artist, Walter Sickert, can stop The Ripper, but he must sacrifice all he thought he knew in order to defeat the darkness.

The original 2006 season of the play Sold Out, and went on to win Most Original Production of the Year, Outstanding New New Zealand Play of the Year, and Production of the Year at the Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards 2006.
