Jack The Ripper: Canonical Five
ALCHEMIST THEATRE presents
The Canonical Five of Jack The Ripper
by aaron kopec
London's famed serial killer was rumored by many to have killed up to eleven women between 1888 and 1891 but only FIVE remain widely accepted as actual victims.
These are the CANONICAL FIVE.
Mary Ann Nichols (Polly), Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes and Mary Kelly were prostitutes suffering through difficult times in London's Whitechapel district.
Each met their violent, horrific end by the hands of the unknown murderer playfully named "Jack the Ripper" by popular media.
This production follows the thoughts, emotions, hopes and fears of these five women during their final days.
