After the completely sold out smash-hit successes of Promise and Promiscuity and Austen Found, Penny Ashton has decided that, much like Oliver Twist, Wellington might like ‘some more.’ So, here she comes with Dickensian-inspired orphaned hero Olive Copperbottom, and a squalid gaggle of hilarious Victorians, who she will bring to crusty life.
A rollicking, romantic, musical journey through 15 gin-soaked characters told with song, dance, and questionable personal hygiene. It’s Oliver! meets Blackadder with a saucy feminine twist.

‘…very very good… very very funny’ — RNZ National
‘It sparkles with intelligence, wit and verve’ — The Christchurch Press
‘It was Rollicking. It was a Romp. It was an unstoppable freight train from the get-go and I loved every moment of it. I exhort everyone to go and see it. You’ll laugh and cheer at this tremendous performance from an absolute star, and hopefully it will bring a little sunshine into these bleak times.’ – The Wellingtonista
