Sweeney Todd @ Sheffield Lyceum, March 15th 2011.
Synopsys: London, Victorian times. A happy-go-lucky sailor is wide-eyed about being in London, a place like no other. The grimy tired faces of passers-by and the foggy atmosphere do not deter him from his excitement. Then his travel companion, a man they found adrift at sea and saved, joins in, comparing London to a cesspit. His look is world-weary, his eyes reveal a soul broken by life. He utters to the young man:
“Life has been kind to you. You will learn”.
