Presented by: Baycourt Presents
Starring: Penny Ashton
Following the sold out successes of Promise and Promiscuity, Penny Ashton (Radio NZ The Panel) swaps Austen for Dickens and brings orphaned hero Olive, and a squalid gaggle of Victorian characters to pox-ridden London 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 that will fulfil your greatest expectations and be the best of times and well… the best of times.
“…very very funny…very very good…” – Radio New Zealand National
“Right from the start, when she bounds onto the stage and establishes with supreme confidence the main characters of her story, through to the end of the 75-minute show, her vitality and drive is relentless.” – The Dominion Post
“I rarely resort to the accolade ‘tour de force’ but here it is entirely appropriate. Olive Copperbottom will give you the best of times, even as it comments on our worst of times.” – Theatreview
