“As gripping onscreen as it was onstage, London Road remains a work of great finesse and originality. ”~Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter
Aroview: An audacious but audience-dividing musical devised around the unlikely premise of Ipswich community members who are drawn together to come to terms with the serial murders of five women in their neighbourhood.
Based on true events that occurred in 2006, and adapted for the screen from the hit National Theatre stage musical.

4 stars (Very Good) Unique. A mixture of social commentary and mad invention. Interviews with local residents are recreated as musical numbers with hesitations, grammatical fumbles, etc., included as lyrics. Dark, often very funny - and with some genuinely great songs. ~Anon
