'The seven deadly sins, rehearsal sketch' by Carol Chilcott

The seven deadly sins: This is where the seven deadly sins enter, with Sin herself on the chaise longue, and they introduce themselves to Faustus. Notice Carol has drawn far more sins than the seven, there are eleven sins in all. This is unlikely to be a mistake in counting people, more about Carol wanting to capture ‘sin is everywhere’.
