JACK THE RIPPER
LICENCE REFUSED FOR A PLAY AT BRIGHTON

Mr. Andrew Melville, proprietor of the Grand Theatre, Brighton, has been informed by the Lord Chamberlain that he is not in a position to license a play entitled Jack the Ripper, which Mr. Melville proposed to produce at Brighton next week. Mr. Melville states that the cast has been selected, the rehearsals are taking place, the scenery has been specially painted, and everything is in readiness for production. The Lord Chamberlain states in his letter that he considers the theme and title extremely undesirable.
