I was Sound Designer for BYMT’s The Dickens Girls. With a band of 6 lead by Oli Jackson, the cast performed the musical with just one week rehearsal!

Winner of the BYMT New Music Theatre Award 2019

Julia Mosley has nothing. No home, no family, no future. She is a prisoner in Victorian London. A ‘fallen woman’. But when Charles Dickens and Angela Burdett-Coutts set up a house for fallen women in Shepherd’s Bush, Julia and a select group of girls have the chance to turn their lives around.

These girls have a year to transform themselves into respectable, skilled women before being shipped abroad as domestic servants and prospective wives. Which girls will succeed, and which will be thrown back to the streets?

This powerful new musical by Rachel Bellman and Elizabeth Sybil Charlesworth features a vibrant original score and questions the expectations placed on young women then and now. P.S This is a true story.
