LONDON ROAD - London Season

LONDON ROAD by Alecky Blythe & Adam Cork

Director Luke Kernaghan

Design: Chloe Chierico & Katy Roberts

In late 2006 the everyday life of the quiet rural town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women.

The residents of London Road had struggled for years with the soliciting and kerb-crawling that they frequently encountered. As Steve Wright, the occupant of No. 79, was arrested, charged and then convicted of the murders, the immediate community grappled with the media frenzy and what it meant to be at the epicentre of this tragedy.

Playwright Alecky Blythe recorded extensive interviews with the people of Ipswich. Composer Adam Cork’s score is a response to the melodic and rhythmic speech patterns captured on those recordings. London Road is an experimental and challenging work, revealing the ways in which even the darkest experiences can engender a greater sense of our mutual dependence.
