Two Acts, Book Musical, Rated G
National Youth Music Theatre
The plight of the homeless and the impoverished is examined through
the eyes of abandoned and abused children in mid-19th century London. A
cobbler and a
philanthropic Earl struggle against the ignorance of the poor, the
indifference of the rich and the unforgiving wheels of blind justice to
improve the fortunes of 13-year old Joe Cooper and the other "Ragged
Children" of London.

Although a story about a disfigured girl, in the original production you never saw the scar that has haunted Violet her entire life... it was left to the audience’s imagination.
