London, 1846. Benjamin Barker returns from exile to find he has lost everything he holds dear and now seeks revenge. Pies, shaving, moral bankruptcy: this is Sondheim’s iconic Sweeney Todd.
Venue: The Byre Theatre, Abbey Street

21 Chump Street is a 14-minute musical based on a true story as reported in the series ‘This American Life’. It follows the cautionary tale of a high school student who goes to great lengths to obtain marijuana to win the heart of an exchange student, only to find she is an undercover cop. 21 Chump Street discusses the ramifications of peer pressure, conformity and drug use not just in US schools but globally, with a message that will stay with you long after you leave the theatre.
