Presented by West Coast Theatre
Directed by Holly Shanahan
Starring Karlos Drinkwater, Loren Armstrong, Libby Needs, Keegan Pulman, Alex Howard and Peter Henderson
In 2006, the world premiere of the Gothic Horror Love story ‘Yours Truly’ was a sell-out sensation at BATS Theatre in Wellington.
Critics raved, the production swept the prestigious Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards and companies across NZ have since staged the work to exceptional reviews.
Yours Truly is a gothic love story of betrayal, power and of man's desire for immortality. When a Prince of London falls in love, the gates of hell are swung open and the Devil stalks the streets of Whitechapel, killing and viciously mutilating women. Only an artist, Walter Sickert, can stop the Ripper, but he must sacrifice all he thought he knew in order to outsmart the Beast. - (Playmarket)
