Christie In Love

A bungled police investigation. An innocent man hanged. A serial killer on the loose

Before Myra Hindley, the Yorkshire ripper and Fred and Rose West there was John Christie. During a decade of horror, Christie murdered eight women and hid their bodies around a Notting Hill boarding-house – 10 Rillington Place. By day he was a prissy-looking post office clerk: by night a modern Bluebeard. Howard Brenton’s 1969 award-winning and shockingly funny play uncovers the crime which changed British society and triggered the abolition of capital punishment. Digging up the dirt on a murderer has never been more entertaining than in this dark and funny play. Over 16s only. Valid ID required. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
