Penny Ashton’s Olive Copperbottom
22 April 2018
Olive Copperbottom: A New Musical by Charles Dickens and Penny Ashton
Penny Ashton’s sold out ‘Iron Chicken Award’ winning show at the 2018 World Buskers Festival, ‘Olive Copperbotttom’ is back in Christchurch by popular demand! If you missed it the first time, get in quick for this one-night show in the intimate cabaret setting of the Gloucester Room.
Following on from her hugely successful Promise and Promiscuity, Penny Ashton (Radio NZ The Panel) 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 rollicking one-woman musical journey that will fulfil your greatest expectations and be the best of times and well… the best of times.
