Extravaganza Macabre

A tale of villainy and valour in Victorian London

"One of the brightest and liveliest young companies around."

- The Daily Telegraph
You are cordially invited to join the Battersea Arts Centre for an evening of wild music and audience mischief, as the makers of Orpheus, Little Bulb Theatre, launch Battersea Arts Centre's new open-air theatre. A freak storm parts two passionate lovers and sets them on a tortuous path of cruel fate and hapless chance. Can a loyal urchin and clairvoyant maid help to reunite the desperate pair? Or will the scheming villain have his wicked way? Witness the woe, howl at the horror and gasp at the gallantry in a tale of unbearably high stakes, unspeakable moral lows and double lashings of devilish over-the-toppery. Recommended for ages 12 and up. Running Time: 1 hour 40 minutes (including an interval). Price includes a complimentary gin drink. Please be aware that this is an open-air theatre, and weather-appropriate clothing is required.
