The Penny Dreadfuls
The Penny Dreadfuls are orphans and runaways who spend their nights and days working for the dastardly Professor as pickpockets and thieves. They've got far more than mischief up their sleeves! Their stolen goods always end up at a pawn shop run by the despicable Bethesda Nightsoil and Dorthea Sprockett. The Professor's partnership with these ladies has been very profitable until Mad Aggie, a former Penny Dreadful now disguised as the town lunatic, vows revenge on the Professor for sending him to jail for ten long years. Meanwhile, the Professor's bizarre family, who thinks he's a respectable businessman, comes for an unwelcome visit. This is a fast-paced, darkly comic non-musical reminiscent of Dickens' "Oliver Twist." As in Dickens' novel, all villains get their due. A very atmospheric play full of dark humor.
