Powderkeg Players present Yours Truly by Albert Belz directed by David Collins March 26 – April 10, 2022.

Yours Truly is a gothic love story of betrayal, sacrifice, power and of man’s desire for immortality.
The play is set in Victorian London, 1888, during Jack the Ripper’s ‘Autumn of Terror.’
When the Prince of England falls in love, the gates of Hell are flung open and the Devil stalks the streets of London, killing and viciously mutilating women.
Only the artist Walter Sickert can stop The Ripper, but in order to do so, he must sacrifice the woman he loves and open himself to the Devil.
Audition will be in December 2021
