Set in 19th century England, the musicals tells the story of Benjamin Barker, aka Sweeney Todd, who returns to London after 15 years' exile on trumped-up charges. When he finds out that his wife poisoned herself after being raped by the judge who transported him, he vows revenge on the judge, and later, the whole world. He teams up with a pie maker, Mrs. Lovett, and opens a barbershop in which he slits the throats of the customers and has them baked into pies.

This new, award-winning adaptation of Dostoyevsky's literary masterpiece is told by three actors playing Raskolnikov (the murderer), Porfiry Petrovitch (the detective) and Sonia (the young prostitute). This "conversation on the nature of evil" is set in the mind of the murderer where he relives and explorers, through the urging of Porfiry and Sonia, the thoughts, ideas and feelings that drove him to his horrible crime. This intimate psychological journey into the mind of a killer and his search for redemption, seeks to unveil hidden dimensions of the human condition.
