Shockheaded Peter Summary

In the spirit of Tim Burton and Edward Gorey comes Shockheaded Peter, a hilariously gruesome musical staging of a classic 19th century children's book. The London smash hit and Olivier Award winner, Shockheaded Peter has beguiled and horrified audiences worldwide. Young Harriett and her pyrotechnic tendencies, little Conrad and his insatiable thumb-sucking, and many others come to gleefully gory ends in this acclaimed import which was hailed by London's The Guardian as "one of the must-sees of the decade. Recommended for ages 10 to 110. Children under 4 years of age will not be admitted into the theatre.
