This production has now ended.
The groundbreaking production returns in summer 2012 for a strictly limited run. In this video, Alecky Blythe (book and lyrics), Adam Cork (music and lyrics) and Rufus Norris (director) talk about London Road's journey to the stage.
London Road documents the events of 2006, when the quiet rural town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women.
Adam Cork's music uses the melodic speech patterns captured on Alecky Blythe's recorded interviews with the people of Ipswich to create this extraordinary work.
