‘Walking with God’ by Substance and Shadow

This autumn Substance and Shadow offer up a spine chilling slice of immersive theatre with Walking With God, a dark original play by Midge and Rosie Mullin set against the backdrop of the terrifying Jack The Ripper murders that took place in Whitechapel in 1888.

Centring around the investigation of a genuine Ripper suspect who was incarcerated at Exeter Digby Mental Asylum, Walking With God is a reimagining of the frequently told Ripper story. Exploring elements of alleged corruption and deceit the play provides a unique perspective on the unsolved murders that took place in 1888 and serves up a spine chilling twist in the inimitable style of Substance and Shadow Theatre!

Proudly funded by Exeter City Council, this intimate stylised theatre show for adults will be performed at Exeter’s iconic St Nicholas Priory – Prepare to be thrilled and tantalised with an eerie mix of theatre, burlesque, original soundscapes and projections!
