Join Another Soup as they return to the King's Head Theatre with another brand new musical, this time delving deep into the story of Sweeney Todd and his mistress, Mrs Cornelia Lovett.
The year is 1879. The place, London. The sordid streets of Holborn are awash with unsavoury individuals, wiling away their lives practicing the variously salacious Victorian vices of the times. On Fleet Street, Mr Sweeney Todd runs a reputable barbershop, shearing the whiskers of the gentry and clergy of London town. His sweetheart, Mrs Cornelia Lovett, spends her days managing an ailing pie shop, constantly on the brink of bankruptcy and plagued by belligerent bailiffs. What will they do to survive? How far will they go to achieve their aims? And what graves will they dig for themselves and others?
With music composed by critically acclaimed Jo Turner, and a script written by award-winning writers, Dave Spencer and Idgie Beau, Lovett and Todd is sure to leave you gripping your seats with fear and feverish joy, ensuring you will be humming long after you leave the world of Victorian London behind.
