London, 1847. Tobias Ragg takes up an apprenticeship at Sweeney Todd’s Barber Shop on Fleet Street.  When a young sailor goes missing after visiting the shop for a shave, Tobias becomes suspicious and his curiosity leads him to make a shocking discovery.

This version of ‘Sweeney Todd’ is based on the original Victorian penny dreadful story ‘The String of Pearls: A Romance’.  It was first performed in 2013 and has been adapted for Mad Red Theatre School’s Production Group.
