Penniless Penny book cover (final).jpg

During the mid 1800’s, Lady Mallét threw a party for her son and heir to the Primrose fortune at Tornsock Hall, in hope of finding him a wife. The local township attended as guests of Lady Mallét; unbeknownst to Lady Mallét, Master Mallét has sent Biggs, his trustworthy messenger boy to seek out his true love Penny Phonetic.


Meanwhile Murgatroyd Miller devises a plan to disgrace Penny and place his daughter, Sally in her place to marry into the Mallét family. Smalls, Master Mallét’s trusted manservant foils Murgatroyd Miller’s plan.

First produced in the 2008 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
