It’s Victorian London- a heaving, bustling, dirty, cramped city. When Henry Mayhew (1812-1887) reported on the lives of the London poor in 1849, he rejected official ideas about the causes of poverty. He told, vividly and with great sympathy, the stories of forgotten needlewomen, tailors, street cleaners, costermongers and street entertainers like the Microscope Exhibitor, causing a sensation, and feeding the sympathy and imagination of the great novelist Charles Dickens. This play tells the moving story of Mayhew’s London, as seen through his life and writings. It uses a large cast to combine music and fast paced tales of human experience which tell us much about the way we live today.
