About the Show

For 125 years the mystery of Jack the Ripper has captivated the imagination of people worldwide and still does today. There have been over 100 books published and numerous films and television documentaries. Many have over dramatised and distorted the facts to the point that the public now accepts the fiction more readily than the facts.

Trevor Marriott is a retired British Police murder squad detective, and leading Ripper expert, who since 2002 has been conducting a cold case investigation into The Whitechapel Murders of 1888, which were attributed to a fearsome killer who came to be known as Jack the Ripper. He has now concluded his long and protracted cold case investigation with startling results that have completely dispelled many of the original theories, which have been readily accepted as being fact for 125 years.

It was generally accepted that the killer only killed five prostitutes between August and November 1888. However, Marriott uncovered other murders outside of those dates both in London and in The USA and Germany. This lead to a new suspect emerging who had never been mentioned before who had been arrested for committing a Ripper like murder in The USA. Further investigative work would uncover secret Metropolitan Police Special Branch records never before made public in which four new suspects are named and the contents of which now eliminate a number of the “prime suspects” who have been continuously investigated over the ensuing years.

This one man show is packed with pictures from 1888 showing original crime scene photographs of the victims, the suspects together with many other original photographs from 1888 relative to the murders...

PLEASE NOTE: some of these photographs are of a disturbing and graphic nature, which some people may find disturbing. However, adequate notice is given during the show to avoid anyone becoming upset or distressed.
