Set against the backdrop of gloomy Victorian London, Sweeney Todd follows the infamous tale of the razor-swinging barber and his pie shop-owning partner-in-crime, Mrs Lovett.

With a spoonful of murder, a dash of cannibalism and a sprinkle of young sweet love, Sondheim’s musical beautifully blends psychological drama and shocking plot twists to create the ultimate musical thriller.

Come along for one of Mrs Lovett’s scrumptious pies; just don’t ask what’s in them...
