There once was a barber who had it all; a happy life, a beautiful wife – until it all ended in bitter strife.

After fifteen years in exile for a crime he didn’t commit, Sweeney Todd returns to London with the help of a young sailor, Anthony. He soon discovers that his wife is dead and his daughter, Johanna, is in the hands of the evil Judge Turpin. With the help of Mrs Lovett, Todd opens a barber shop above her unsuccessful meat pie store with the hope of luring in the Judge for his murderous revenge. Todd’s lust for vengeance becomes so powerful that he turns his razor against the unsuspecting public of London – but then there is the problem of how to dispose of the bodies. Even though times are hard, Mrs Lovett’s meat pies become a raging success thanks to the help of a special new ingredient...
