A Tale of Villainy & Valour in Victorian London
Following the launch of Battersea Arts Centre’s open-air Courtyard in the summer of 2016, Little Bulb Theatre‘s Extravaganza Macabre returned the venue last July 2017. It was a month of wild music and audience mischief!
A freak storm parts two passionate lovers and sets them on a tortuous path of cruel fate and hapless chance. Can a loyal urchin and clairvoyant maid help to reunite the desperate pair? Or will our scheming villain have his wicked way?
Witness the woe, howl at the horror and gasp at the gallantry in a tale of unbearably high stakes, unspeakable moral lows and double lashings of devilish over-the-toppery.
This performance will take place in our open-air Courtyard theatre – please dress for the weather!
