“comic, perceptive and deeply touching” The Telegraph

In late 2006 the everyday life of the quiet rural town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women in six weeks.  The arrest and conviction of local resident Steve Wright impacts on the lives of the immediate community as they struggle to cope in the spotlight of the ensuring media storm. 

Playwright Alecky Blythe worked with composer Adam Cork after recording extensive interviews documenting the complex psychological effects that the murders had on the town’s residents at the centre of this tragedy.

London Road was named Best Musical at the 2011 Critics' Circle Theatre Awards.

 “an astonishing document about a beleaguered yet resilient community... a startling, magically original success'” Evening Standard
