Thrupenny Tales

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

Roll up, roll up! Feast your eyes on stories of supernatural magick, sensational highway women, and the creatures that lurk in the streets and back alleys of the city. 

The Victorian city’s populations are rapidly expanding and they are hungry for entertainment, whether it’s the spectacle of the theatre, or the latest scandals hot off the printing press. The Ministry of Unplanned Occurrences obliges with improvised pulp stories designed to be seen for one-night only.

Buy yourself a ticket to the Thrupenny Tales, and immerse yourself in a world of tension and intrigue, if only for an hour…
