You are invited to join us in the rank and dank streets of Victorian London in this Penny Dreadful adaptation of the late, great Stephen Sondheim’s masterpiece Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
Join the most infamous barber of all time in his bloody quest for vengeance as you’re dragged by the heels through London’s rat-ridden streets underscored by a full orchestra playing one of the most intricate and celebrated musical theatre scores of all time.
There’s a hole in the world like a big black pit, and it’s filled with people who are filled with s**t, and the vermin of the world inhabit it…but not for long!
Please note: This production depicts graphic violence in the form of throat cutting, blood and gore.  Themes and language of an adult nature.
