Sweeney Todd, whose real name is Benjamin Barker, uses his new alias to resume work in his barber shop above Mrs. Lovett’s struggling pie shop after being wrongfully sentenced tolife imprisonment by the corrupt Judge Turpin. After swearing vengeance against the judge that tore his family apart, Todd and Lovett plot a unique plan that helps them both and leads them down a dangerous, thrilling path with deadly consequences.
Audiences will experience the haunting, horrible beauty of “Sweeney Todd” as a roving, immersive production inside the Neighbourhood Food Hub at Glen Rhodes Campus—its disparate spaces serving to augment their intimacy with the piece and indeed the characters within it.
