About: The only girl in the world- a play of Jack the Ripper

Mary Kelly is sexy, bright, and devil-may-care. Joseph Barnett is a steady, decent sort. Just another couple struggling to keep love alive in modern Britain... Only this modern Britain is the East End in 1888: and the breaking news – of a man who slaughters prostitutes and calls himself ‘Jack’ – may be more than just a scare-story...

Glyn Maxwell is one of our most exciting contemporary playwrights. His plays have been staged in London (National, Almeida, BAC), New York and Edinburgh, and his eight books of poetry have won several awards. With rising young actress Jennifer Kidd ('Holding Fire!', 'The Merchant of Venice' at the Shakespeare's Globe, 'The Changeling' for Cheek by Jowl), and directed by the acclaimed Alex Clifton ('Pursued by a Bear')


“The best dramatic poet now at work in English” Daily Telegraph

“Glyn Maxwell is a superlative writer. (His) writing gleams with the wit of John Donne and is written in the rhythm of Shakespeare” ***** The Scotsman
