Olive Copperbottom

A New Musical by Charles Dickens and Penny Ashton

new zealander flag small69

Following Promise & Promiscuity's bounteous successes, Penny Ashton swaps Austen for Dickens and brings orphaned hero Olive and a squalid gaggle of Victorians to life.

Will Olive find a family amongst the brothels, toffs and gruel? Or will Mrs Sourtart break her heart as well as her teeth? A rollicking one-woman musical journey to fulfill your greatest expectations and be the best of times and well the best of times.

"A sparkling performer whose energy bounces off the stage"  – The Scotsman
