In this show, character comedian Robert Inston – with respect to victims, and irreverence that only comes from knowledge – dissects the suspected perpetrators and celebrities dumbfounded by the demon of Whitechapel.

In Part 1, he gives an overview of the period, particularly the response of the Government and Queen Victoria herself, whose own grandson was a suspect.

In Part 2, he “becomes” Geoge Chapman, wife poisoner; John Piser, known as Leather Apron, as he worked in a slaughterhouse; the pathetic Aaron Kosminski, who was more solitary than social….

ANNA MORRIS: KID-LIFE CRISIS
Oct 10 @ 5:15pm – 6:15pm

• Sat 10 Oct @ 5:15pm •
• Fri 23 Oct @ 8:15pm •
• Sat 24 Oct @ 5:15pm •
(1 hour / doors open 15 min before show time)

Award-winning character comedian Anna Morris (Ch4’s Lee and Dean) returns to Brighton with a work-in-progress of her debut stand-up show. A work-in-progress in the lead-up to a BBC Radio 4 recording of same name. For the first time in her career, Morris steps-out of her much-loved characters and reveals a side we’ve never seen.

Anna welcomes you to share her kid-life crisis as she approaches 40 and contemplates Motherhood. Anna’s having a very female mid-life crisis. Men turn to a leather jacket, a sports car, younger woman and are told they’re more attractive as they age. Anna has bagged the younger man, but looks like a tosser in a leather jacket, can’t drive, has been offered botox by her own PR person, can’t afford her rent and still suffers from acne.

Friends and strangers unhelpfully keep reminding her that she “hasn’t got long!” and “better hurry up!” and procreate. But does she really want children…or is it even possible?

Kid-Life Crisis is an honest, funny and warm show about doing things differently.
