Trivia

Cast member Anita Dobson was appearing in a Christmas pantomime in Ipswich when the murders were taking place. She recalled the deserted streets, and the theater hiring taxis to take the chorus girls home safely. She remembered how difficult it was to get people to come out to see a happy Christmas show while the town was gripped with fear. See more »

Extremely Odd Film About The Community Spirit & Resilience Of The People Who Lived Down The Same Road As A Serial Killer
30 April 2017 | by fionadpSee all my reviews

Making A Mockery Of Murder ~ This is a film about the Suffolk Strangler/Ipswich Ripper murders. Steve Wright is currently serving life imprisonment for the murder of five young women in Ipswich,Suffolk.The film focuses on the local community and how it pulled together and recovered from the shock of his grotesque spree killings. It features the real and unscripted words of the local residents put in the mouths of actors.It's presented in the form of a light hearted musical which is bizarre and slightly disturbing.These killings took place during the winter of 2006 which is only nine years ago - it's very insensitive for the film industry to exploit this tragedy & disregard the grief of bereaved parents in the pursuit of entertainment.
