About this show

It’s 1975. In Leeds, the Millgarth Incident Room is the epicentre of the biggest manhunt in British police history.

We follow Sergeant Megan Winterburn as she joins hundreds of officers working around the clock to find the man known as the Yorkshire Ripper.

With public pressure mounting, the investigation resorts to increasingly audacious attempts to catch one of Britain’s most notorious serial killers.

Following award-winning productions of Secret Life of Humans and Down & Out in Paris and London, New Diorama Theatre go behind the scenes and investigate the case that broke the British police force.

The Incident Room is directed by Beth Flintoff and New Diorama Theatre's Artistic Director, David Byrne, and is written by Olivia Hirst and David Byrne.

Running time: Approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes (including an interval)
