A New Musical by Charles Dickens and Penny Ashton
Director: Ben Crowder and Penny Ashton
Company: Penash Productions
Preview 9 May

Following the delicate sold out successes of Promise and Promiscuity, Penny Ashton (Radio NZ The Panel) swaps Austen for Dickens and brings orphaned hero Olive and a squalid gaggle of Victorian characters to pox ridden London life.

Will Olive find a family amongst the brothels, toffs and gruel? Or will Mrs Sourtart, Mr Fivestars or even Mr Goodsort break her heart as well as their teeth? A rollicking one-woman musical journey that will fulfil your greatest expectations and be the best of times and well… the best of times.

Promise and Promiscuity: Winner Best Theatre, Adelaide Fringe

“…a sparkling performer whose energy bounces off the stage.” - The Scotsman, Promise and Promiscuity
