14 October - 21 October
Sweeney Todd

Music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Hugh Wheeler
Directed by Sarah Dyer
Musical direction by Allan Gillespie

One of the darkest musicals ever written, Sweeney Todd: A Musical Thriller is the tale of a Victorian barber who returns home to London after years of exile to take revenge on a corrupt judge who ruined his life. Using his new alias Sweeney Todd he resumes work in a barber shop above Mrs. Lovett's struggling pie shop. Swearing vengeance against the man that tore his family apart, Todd and Mrs Lovett plot an 'unsavoury' plan that leads them down a dangerous and thrilling path with deadly consequences.

Widely acknowledged as Stephen Sondheim's most perfect score, Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and terror. This award winning gothic musical is the pinnacle of Sondheim's work with songs Worst Pies in London, A Little Priest and The Ballad of Sweeney Todd.
