The Story of Sweeney Todd the Demon Barber of Fleet Street:

Sweeney Todd is a musical thriller set in 19th Century England. It tells the story of a barber – Sweeney Todd / Benjamin Barker, who returns to London after being wrongfully charged and shipped off to a penal colony, Australia, for 15 years.

He returns to wreak vengeance upon Judge Turpin, who had originally sentenced him to exile, and the Judge’s accomplice, Beadle Bamford.

Sweeney Todd discovers that his wife is missing, presumed dead, and his now coming-of-age daughter, Johanna, has been raised all this time by the evil Judge Turpin. The Judge intends to now make his ‘ward’ Johanna, his wife.

On the boat to London, Sweeney Todd befriends a young man, Anthony Hope, who inadvertently falls in love with Johanna and sets about attempting to rescue her from the clutches of Judge Turpin.

Upon his return to London, Sweeney Todd rents a room above Mrs Lovett’s dismal pie shop, where as Benjamin Barker he had previously conducted his business as a barber. Sweeney Todd’s desire for revenge turns to murderous psychopathology which he and Mrs Lovett conveniently conceal by converting the bodies of the victims into meat for the increasingly popular pies.

After the murder of Signor Pirelli, Mrs Lovett takes his helper, Tobias, under her wing. Tobias is afraid of Sweeney Todd and swears to protect Mrs Lovett. In the end Tobias brings about the death of Sweeney Todd.

Although Sweeney Todd is a thriller, it is at times humorous and is also a tragic love story.
