Penny Ashton is back in Toronto with Olive Copperbottom

Penny Ashton

Oh my! What the DICKENS is going on ‘ere then?

We featured Penny Ashton last year when she brought Promise and Promiscuity to Toronto … and she’s back at the Al Green Theatre from July 6-15 with Olive Copperbottom.

“Howdy British Bloke,” she squealed. “I am back in Toronto mainlining another literary superstar Charles Dickens. It’d be lovely if you had the time to do another post about this show too. I am still married to a Britisher too, which is lucky. Not sure how you’re swinging, but good luck in the election!”

Cheers Penny, swinging great thanks! And here’s the plug:

“Following the delicate sold out successes of Promise and Promiscuity, Penny Ashton swaps Austen for Dickens and brings orphaned hero Olive, and a squalid gaggle of Victorian characters to pox-ridden London life. Will Olive find a family amongst the brothels, toffs and gruel? Or will Mrs Sourtart break her heart as well as her teeth? A rollicking one-woman musical journey that will fulfil your greatest expectations and be the best of times and well … the best of times.”

We have to admit it does sound like a rip-roaring good time, so please contact Penny via her website for details.
