“…an innovative masterpiece.” The Leamington Courier

The greatest celebrity villain of the Victorian age, the life of Charlie Peace became legend. He was a master of disguise, an accomplished musician and irresistibly attractive to women. On the run, having murdered his lover’s husband, he holed up in the warrens of Nottingham’s Narrow Marsh before reinventing himself one final time, on the streets of Victorian London.

Drawing on the visual styles of Steampunk and Victoriana, and presented in the tradition of Victorian side-shows, this modern musical melodrama asks the question: Why, now as then, are we terrified of crime but fascinated by criminals?

“The agile and stupendously multi-talented, Peter Duncan stars in the title role.” Remotegoat
