Bastian returns homes for Thanksgiving with news of "joining the service". Mother suggests he join a gym. Bastian's news takes a backseat when his sister, Rissa, suddenly decides that she's pregnant, and though not yet showing, expects to deliver "any minute now". Both children are then bombarded with Mother's news of an older bother that they've never known about, Thom, who has returned home for Thanksgiving from the war. Things are further complicated with the arrival of the mysterious, young Abigail, who has simply stopped by to drop something off - her newborn baby. That is, until she discovers the baby's father might be in the house.

Beneath its lively surface, the East End of the 1880s was a dark place where ‘poor unfortunates’ sold their bodies to stay alive. And it became Jack the Ripper’s turf. Set in both the Music Hall and on the murky London streets this is a lively, sad and comical musical play that reconstructs the murders of 1888.
