London, 12 February 2015. Picturehouse Entertainment in conjunction with
the National Theatre today announced that LONDON ROAD,the feature film
adaptation of the critically acclaimed stage production, will be released in
the UK on 12th June 2015.

Theatre, the feature film adaptation of LONDON ROAD reunites the award winning team, with script by
Alecky Blythe, music by Adam Cork and directed by Rufus Norris (Broken).

LONDON ROAD documents the
events that shook Suffolk in 2006, when the quiet rural town of Ipswich was
shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women. The residents of London
Road had struggled for years with frequent soliciting and kerb-crawling on
their street. The film follows the community who found themselves at the
epicentre of the tragic events. Using their own words set to an innovative
musical score, LONDON ROAD tells a moving story of ordinary people coming
together during the darkest of experiences.
Director of Broadcast and Digital, from the National Theatre said: “We are thrilled to be
working with Picturehouse Entertainment on London Road. We have
worked closely since the launch of National Theatre Live, bringing our work to
audiences in cinemas across the country, and this film release is an exciting
evolution of that partnership.”
A Cuba Pictures / National Theatre production, the
film is produced by Dixie Linder, and executive produced by Nick Marston, Tally
Garner and David Sabel. BBC Films, the BFI Film Fund, Arts Council England and
LipSync financed the project.
