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 the NDT award-winning productions of Secret Life of Humansand Down & Out in Paris and London, we 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.

It is a co-production with Greenwich Theatre supported by Arts Council England.
