This take on the traditional Victorian melodrama is aimed at young performers and is a lot sillier than most other versions. Queen Victoria is just one addition to the usual list of characters. Mrs Lovett's automated pie-making machine, a riot in the madhouse at Peckham and a police chase involving most of the cast are among the many opportunities for slapstick and physical theatre. The well-known storyline is still in there somewhere but this is more 'Carry On' than Sondheim.-Large flexible cast
