Sweeney Todd: His Life, Times and Execution!


Finger in the Pie present a finger in the pie! We welcome you to New Gate Prison to witness the terrible tale of Sweeney Todd, before we hang him before your very eyes!

We fell head over heals for this show, dark, funny and aesthetically stunning… See it if you can.
– Time Out Critics Choice

Recasting Sweeney Todd as a clown in the tradition of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, Sweeney Todd is an hilarious black comedy – combining slap stick humour, grotesque characters, physical storytelling and live cabaret music.

There’s a reason this production has been so highly critically acclaimed. It’s because it’s awesome… Criminally Funny. Totally Faultless Drama. ★★★★★

 Working with an international team of puppeteers and performers, Finger in the Pie Theatre Company have devised a brand new version of the classic Sweeney Todd myth. We have combined an aesthetic of the grotesque with physical storytelling, puppetry and live music to bring to life the seething underworld of Eighteenth Century London.
