Following the global successes of Promise & Promiscuity, Kiwi Penny Ashton swaps Austen for Dickens and brings orphaned hero Olive, and a squalid gaggle of Victorian characters to poxy London life. Will Olive find a family? 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… the best of times. (Toronto Fringe Festival program)
