Arts on Tour NZ

Penny Ashton tours Olive Copperbottom - A Dickensian Tale of Love, Gin and the Pox.

Following on from her hugely successful Promise and Promiscuity tour with Arts On Tour in 2014, Penny Ashton swaps Jane Austen for Charles Dickens and brings orphaned hero Olive and a squalid gaggle of hilarious Victorians, to crusty life.

A rollicking romantic musical journey through fifteen gin-soaked characters told with song, dance and questionable personal hygiene. It’s Oliver! meets Blackadder with a saucy feminine twist.

Ashton’s “…tour-de-force…” (Theatreview) won the Press Critic’s ‘Iron Chicken award for best indoor show at the Christchurch International Buskers’ Festival this year and Best Overall Show at the Victoria Fringe in Canada 2017.

“…very very good…very very funny.” - Radio NZ National 2017

“…a one-woman show wonder.” - Canadian Broadcasting Corporation 2017

“It sparkles with intelligence, wit and verve.” - The Christchurch Press 2018
