Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd!

This Halloween, tuck into Stephen Sondhiem’s gloriously gruesome musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

War is ravaging 1940s London. A landscape of fear and shadows.A life of uncertainty and hardship. Returning to the city after 15 years of unjust exile, the eponymous barber intends to extract revenge on the judge who ruined his life.

As Sweeney Todd’s thirst for vengeance turns into a vendetta against a merciless world, his resourceful landlady, Mrs Lovett, stumbles upon an ingredient that may just turn around the fortunes of her failing pie shop!

This dark and witty tale of love, murder and revenge is being served with a fresh twist by the multi-award-winning Sainsbury Singers.
