The Unfortunate

22nd April - 1st May

Tickets: £12, Concessions £10

Bench members and friends free


London, 1888. In this fast-paced, epic play, journalist Christian Lane, is sent by his unscrupulous editor to report on the latest Jack the Ripper murder. In Whitechapel's poorest streets, he meets Isobel Prater, damned, like so many Victorian women, to live the degenerate life of an 'unfortunate'.  


Struck by Isobel's plight, Christian rejects the sensationalism of his newspaper to embark upon a crusade to reform Whitechapel, the darkest corner of the British Empire.


The Unfortunate by Ben Tanner is presented by Bench Theatre.


The play contains adult themes. Recommended age 12+
