    Charity Hope Valentine is looking for love and looking for a way out of her dance hall show girl life. But even the purest of hearts can be led astray, as she finds herself lost in the urban jungle of 1960’s New York and learns that no-one can completely run away from their past.

    A story of intrigue, sex and style; such classics as ‘Hey! Big Spender’, ‘If They Could See Me Now’ and ‘The Rhythm of Life’ spellbind and intoxicate as Charity falls in and out of the arms of suave movers and shakers, and experiences the highs and lows of free spirited psychedelic living.

    Following a highly acclaimed sell-out production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street at the Edinburgh Fringe this summer FitzTheatre returns to home ground to produce the stunning Bob Fosse musical masterpiece ‘Sweet Charity’. So come experience the compulsive music, stunning dance and exhilarating atmosphere commanded by a vivacious and inspiring cast as you follow Charity through her trials and triumphs in one unforgettable evening.
