A puppet-sized bite of deliciously macabre, true history from artist and puppeteer Daisy Jordan.

It’s 1871: Brighton. One woman spurned by unrequited love, inflamed with a barely quenched lust, undertook a murderous rampage about the town. Her weapon of choice? Confectionery! Sweets laced with poison…

Seven lavish glove puppets and one narrator-puppeteer enact this darkly comic, historical tale of the infamous chocolate-cream poisoner. Accompanied by an original, creepily beautiful score, tonight’s fabulous and absurd piece of gothic theatre is suitable for brave and imaginative theatregoers over the age of ten. Don’t miss it – it’s a treat of a tale for a cold winter’s night.
