In 1892 London, the lovable but inept players of the Music Hall Royale present their musical version of Charles Dickens' final, unfinished novel. At the point when the great author "laid down his pen forever," the audience is invited to vote on three important questions: who is the Murderer, who is behind the false beard of disguised detective Dick Datchery, and which two Lovers will be united at the end.
