Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd, the story of the notorious demon barber of Fleet Street.

When Sweeney Todd returns to London after 15 years of unjust incarceration, his mind is bent on black revenge. He longs to kill the sadistic Judge Turpin who had stolen and abused Todd’s wife and wrongfully banished him to Australia. With the help of a young idealistic sailor, Antony, and the loveable but immoral Mrs Lovett, Todd sets his mind to avenging his beloved wife Lucy and being reunited with his daughter Johanna, now locked away by the lecherous Turpin.

This delightfully macabre tale descends into a cut-throat world of cannibalism, caged birds, meat pies, mad beggars and deceit as Todd restarts his career as a barber, declaring war on all mankind.

Join the Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society in an industrial world of smoke and steampunk as they try a little priest. It’s an acquired taste.
