Victorian Gothic - Edinburgh Fringe 2017

Sweet Holyrood - Holyrood 2

(Being the deliberations of Inspector Albert Thorne, the Metropolitan Police Force, Scotland Yard, London, 1899). Turn-of-the-century London. This solo play delves into the murky underworld of the capital's depraved East End. A lively lecture, given by respected Police Inspector Albert Thorne, recalls his memories of working and living there. As an outsider, he takes his young family to start a new life in a "place full of wonder". But, it isn't long before he realises the horrors of London and the dispossessed souls on its streets... The play deals with migration, ambition and deliverance.
