OLIVE COPPERBOTTOM: A New Musical by Charles Dickens and Penny Ashton
Following the delicate sold out successes of Promise and Promiscuity, Penny Ashton 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 break her heart as well as her teeth?
A rollicking one-woman musical journey that will fulfill your greatest expectations and be the best of times and well… the best of times.
Stay tuned in 2017 for the world premiere of this brand new one woman musical journey. Featuring reworkings of classical masters such as Chopin, Verdi and Tchaikovsky by the ever talented Robbie Ellis, and a brand new corset to make your eyes water from Elizabeth Whiting.
Ashton requests that you should come because as Dickens says; “It is a hopeless endeavour to attract people to the theatre, unless they first be brought to believe they will never get in.”
