WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
It is the late nineteenth century. The Music Hall Royale is presenting the premiere performance of its musical comedy drama based VERY loosely on the last novel by Charles Dickens. Unfortunately, as we discover, the book is unfinished. From the point at which Dickens puts down his pen forever, you, the audience take over. You must decide whether a crime has been committed, if so, who did it, and which of the characters will finish the play as lovers. The company must learn all 500 possible endings in order to perform whichever variety of conclusions you vote for. Subtle - and not so subtle - measures will be taken as the players try to ensure they have a stab at being villain (or hero). Ultimately though the choice is yours!
