The Geekenders Present: Kill The Ripper

The Geekenders Present: Kill The Ripper

8:00pm - Friday, Jul 8, 2022

While history’s most infamous killer stalks the streets of Whitechapel, a remarkable trio of women must take matters into their own hands and learn to find, fight, and destroy a murderer.

Featuring over-the-top fight sequences, acrobatics, evocative sets, and sumptuous period costumes, this production of KILL THE RIPPER is a darkly comic feast for the senses.

From Vancouver’s “beloved” “cult sensation” Geekenders, and Affair of Honor (the Jessie-nominated company behind SOUL SAMURAI), comes an intimate, scintillating look at what really could have befallen the murderer named Jack.
