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)

Directed by the original ‘Mary Kelly’ from the 2006 premiere season, Holly Shanahan (Second Hand Wedding, Outrageous Fortune, Underbelly) brings this masterwork to Taranaki in a thrilling new production with West Coast Theatre – A new company dedicated to building professional theatre opportunities in Taranaki for local artists.

The play stars:
Karlos Drinkwater (Shortland Street, Spartacus)  Loren Armstrong (The Bright Lights of Taihape) as Sickert and Kelly. 

They are joined by a local cast of young actors:
Libby Needs (Wheeler’s Luck), Keegan Pulman and Alex Howard (The End of the Golden Weather), and returning to the stage after many years, Peter Henderson, as the Royal physician Dr. Gull
