Olive Copperbottom: A New Musical by Charles Dickens and Penny Ashton
Kiwi 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.
