Sweeney Todd

Following on from the success of last year's 'Made in Dagenham', LSESU Drama Society bring you 'Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street' in collaboration with LSESU Music Society. 

In this Sondheim classic and infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to 19th century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up, and the carnage has only just begun!
