An Amateur production

Prouced with permission from Samuel French Ltd



There have been at least six versions of the Sweeney Todd story since George Dibdin-Pitt’s original play, which was first performed in 1847 at The Brittania, a London “Bloodbath” (a theatre devoted almost entirely to melodramas). The idea was taken from a “Penny Dreadful” news-sheet story.


In this play CG Bond has remained true to the story but has moved on from the rather one-dimensional, crudely drawn characters found in melodramas. He has given us a real plot and real characters, and an explanation for the change in Sweeney’s character from a badly wronged ordinary man to that of a homicidal maniac!

Veryan Players are an amateur dramatic group who perform a range of productions ranging from serious to farce. The only thing we don't do is Pantomime, we leave that to our friends at St. Mawes and Tregony. We usually perform three plays a year. We are always looking for new acting members (Particularly 18 to 40) and anyone else who wants to be involved in local theatre.
