East End Kingpin Travis Flood used to rule the streets many years ago. Once a giant amongst London men he left suddenly one day and was not heard from again.

Until now.

On this dark night, over 20 years later, he has returned to his old turf for one last glorious time. But when he happens to wander into the kitchen of Torchie Sparkes, a dimming light from his youth, he is confronted by a past he wanted to forget. Coming face to face with Torchie’s mesmerising granddaughter, Rio, and her gang of savage, bloodthirsty followers, he soon learns that the cold and mysterious Rio has secrets of her own to share. And share them she will no matter what the consequences. For any of them.

Watch this shocking tale unfold on stage, as the haunted past meets the unflinchingly violent present.

‘Ghost From A Perfect Place’, Philip Ridley’s controversial iconic masterpiece, originally premiered in London in April 1994 and now over twenty years later is being brought to life for Manchester audiences by the Unnamed Theatre Company.
