Sweeney Todd - The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

What's On - Events Calendar for Exeter and the surrounding area of Devon
30th October 2017 ** EVENT ENDED **
Overview: This Halloween, Hot Rock Productions presents Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Stephen Sondheims masterpiece, and the definitive Grusical, don't miss out on the ultimate theatrical horror experience.

Benjamin Barker is a wronged man. A humble barber who plies his trade on the London thoroughfare of Fleet Street, Barker becomes the victim of corrupt local authority Judge Turpin, and his eerie second in command, Beadle Bamford. After taking a passing fancy to Barkers wife, Lucy, they firstly abuse their power to have the poor barber deported on false charges, before luring her to the Judges house to have their wicked way with her. Turpin casts Lucy out on the street, leaving her for dead, whilst adopting the Barkers abandoned daughter, Johanna.

Fast forward 15 years, and Benjamin Barkers empty premises have finally been taken by the mysterious Sweeney Todd, a strangely familiar looking man with a vacant expression in his eye. Business flourishes after a public display of his skill in a contest with the flamboyant Adolfo Pirelli earns him the patronage of Beadle Bamford, and with him, the Judge. Meanwhile, Sweeneys neighbour Mrs. Lovetts struggling meat pie business has taken a turn for the better. But just where is she getting her meat from Will Johanna Barker ever escape from her caged existence in the Judges house And why does Sweeney Todd look so familiar

With a host of unforgettable characters, Tarantino-esque dialogue and some of Sondheims most famous music, including The Worst Pies in London, Johanna, Epiphany and A Little Priest, laughter and jumpiness are guaranteed. And, oh yes, there will be blood!
