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.
