Sweeney Todd: His Life, Times and Execution!

Lashings of fake blood, ample busts and bawdy thrusts characterise this enjoyable and suitably grotesque adaptation. The twist here is that the killings are largely accidental, the killer a meek, clumsy and rather sweet boy. The puppetry is perhaps an extra dimension that didn’t need to be added, but the music is wonderfully atmospheric and it’s adeptly performed by the cast.

Witness the terrible tale of Sweeney Todd, then watch him hang before your very eyes! Finger in the Pie present an hilarious black comedy of slapstick humour, grotesque characters, physical storytelling, puppetry and live cabaret music.
