Charlie Peace: His Amazing Life and Astounding Legend
by Michael Eaton
Directed by Martin Berry
Composer and Musical Director Paul Barker
Musical Director David Merriman
Choreographer Steve Elias
Performed by MA Music Theatre students
Before Jack the Ripper, there was Charlie Peace: the most infamous villain in Victorian England. Michael Eaton’s inventive and colourful play sees Charlie through the eyes of a raucous vaudeville entertainment, including original music by Paul Barker and newly unearthed historical material.
Recounting and re-examining how a philanderer, murderer and master of disguise came to fascinate and enthrall the public before and after death – this is a truly villainous Victorian vaudeville.
