Inspired by the GOTHIC BEAUTY of Penny Dreadful, the GRISLY HORROR of Sweeney Todd, and the REAL-LIFE MYSTERY of Ripper Street.
Set in Victorian London, around the fog-shrouded streets of Whitechapel, Bang Up to the Elephant takes its inspiration from real-life mysteries and classic literature; combining them to create a new, re-imagined world. A world where prostitutes roam aplenty and a Doctor experiments with life, death and re-animation. Where the murder and mutilation of the cities prositutes haunt and p erplex during the Autumn of Terror in 1888.
New characteris mix with well-known ones, to weave their way through a dark, gritty, yet modern world. A world that takes its tone and texture from popular pieces of visual television and cinema. Pieces that stunningly display their own atmospheric style of an iconic time in history. A dark and grimy world full of beauty, science and redemption.
