Alexa Romanes's play for young people traces the fortunes of the poorest of the human chain in Victorian London, from the mudlarks who scour the Thames mud for a pittance, to the crossing sweepers, costers and pickpockets. Into their midst comes a mysterious stranger, Sal, a maid-of-all-work from the country who is running from her Rotherhithe employer.

One of the best show's I've done - a play with songs, so a nice halfway house to a musical. Good historic setting allowed us to have fun researching the past and the play cleverly explored the environment Victorian children had to work in. Colourful, fun, yet poignant and moving - if the audience weren't in tears by the end I wasn't happy!
