The air is thick with factory smoke, children play with rats in the gutter and London is ablaze with sin and treachery. A young boy, unaware of the cruelties of the city, rescues an escaped convict and sets in motion events that will lead to the creation of the most notorious and glamourised serial killer of the 19th Century – Sweeney Todd.

When corruption of the law is rife and crime lurks on every corner, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street sets out to bring the upper classes to it’s knees and the lower classes to the table.

Prestwich Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society (PADOS) are proud to present their adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s razor-sharp tale of vengeance, true love and one man’s crusade to right a terrible justice.
