Penny Black

Penny Black” the musical follows a woman’s life with her dominating husband and show’s how, despite her circumstances, she manages to discover her own hidden talents and find true love. I used to be a counsellor and I became aware in my work, that although there are lots of happy marriages, there are some marriages that are not working and in some cases the wife is being oppressed by the husband. So I wrote ’Penny Black’ to try to give a voice to these women who are suffering in our community. I am a big campaigner for women rights, and feel deep concern about all oppressed people all over the world.

Penny Black is a romantic musical comedy and was first staged at the Under Ground Theatre Eastbourne, East Sussex, to a full house.

Comes with guide vocals & backing tracks
