Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
The Crucible Theatre, 22nd-23rd June 2012

Sweeney Todd marks NUTS’ first appearance at the International Student Drama Festival and we are proud to present one of the most award-winning musicals of all time, with ten Tony Awards, thirteen Drama Desk Awards and seven Lawrence Olivier Awards since it was first written in 1979.

Revenge is a dish best served cold for wronged barber Sweeney Todd, who seeks retribution for the loss of his family. With those who maligned him still at large, Todd sets about making the world pay for his loss. So begins a war of personal justice. With companion Mrs Lovett, owner of a failing pie shop, they hatch a plan that turns the ‘dish’ of revenge into something not so metaphorical. Fresh from Newcastle University, this production puts a unique spin on the classic tale!
