Winnipeg Fringe Festival [2017] - Olive Copperbottom

Olive Copperbottom: A New Musical by Charles Dickens and Penny Ashton (Penash Productions)

Director / Workshop Director – Ben CrowderCrowder

Cast – Penny Ashton

Kiwi Penny Ashton 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 rolicking one-woman musical journey that will fulfil your greatest expectations and be the best of times and well… the best of times.
