The Flea

Author(s): James Fritz
Company: The Yard Theatre
Age recommendation: 16+

July 1889, London. Charlie Swinscow is arrested for theft. He had more cash on his person than a poor lad like him is expected to have.

(But he didn’t steal. He just let a lord have a go between his legs.)

A retelling of the Cleveland Street Scandal that shook England-from the streets of Bermondsey to the halls of Buckingham Palace—featuring a flea, a horse, a detective, a queen, a pimp, a god and Charlie, the telegraph boy who knelt before the Crown.
