The Mansfield Playhouse is proud to announce that its 2014-15 season will kick off with the musical thriller Sweeney Todd. A corrupt judge sends Benjamin Barker away from London on trumped-up charges. After a fifteen-year absence he returns to discover that his wife poisoned herself after suffering abuse at the hands of the same judge. Barker vows revenge and turns into Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. He teams up with pie maker Mrs. Lovett and they soon have a booming business. But what is the secret ingredient of those pies? This haunting story is filled with beautiful songs and plenty of surprises.
