Apocalypse Lounge presents Artful Dodgers – a cheeky twist on the classic Charles Dickens novel.
After a chance meeting with the mercurial Artemis Dawkins, Olivia Twist finds herself taken in by a lively burlesque theatre, The Artful Dodgers. But firebrand preacher Reverend Sykes in on a moral crusade to stamp out indecent entertainment with Olivia’s new home being his next target.
The original musical puts a spin on the well-known plot and characters with some sassy song and dance along the way. With script by Ross MacLeod and music by Jeremy Mayall and Nick Braae, Artful Dodgers will leave you asking, “Please Sir, may I have some more?”
