London Road

London Road documents the events of 2006, when 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 frequent soliciting and kerb-crawling on their street. When Steve Wright, the occupant of No. 79, was arrested, charged and then convicted of the murders, the community grappled with what it meant to be at the epicentre of this tragedy.

Adam Cork's music uses the melodic speech patterns captured on Alecky Blythe's recorded interviews with the people of Ipswich to create this extraordinary work.

28 July - 6 September 2012.

Audio-Described performances: Fri 17 Aug at 7.30pm, Sat 18 Aug at 2pm (Touch Tour at 12.30pm)
