Angel, a spell-bindingly beautiful boy, is plucked from the streets to be the plaything of a wealthy newspaper proprietor. This street-boy turned socialite moves with ease between the worlds of privilege and poverty in 1890s Paris and London. Angel's rapid success turns as swiftly into self-destruction as he is caught in a downward spiral of obsession, money, murder, suicide and white slavery.

Original Sin premiered at the Sheffield Crucible Theatre in June 2002.
