Sophie Thompson and Jamie Parker reprise their roles in the Chichester Festival Theatre production of this much-loved musical as it transfers to the Savoy Theatre for a strictly limited season.

Based on stories and characters by Damon Runyon, Guys And Dolls follows the tale of Nathan Detroit as he desperately needs to find money for an illegal dice game. Not to mention a 14-year engagement with nightclub singer Miss Adelaide, whose patience is finally running out.

Cue notorious gambler Sky Masterson, a guy who can never turn down a bet, and straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown, a doll with a heart of ice. Nathan’s wager is that Sky has to romance Sarah by taking her to Havana for dinner and in return he’ll provide a dozen ‘sinners’ for Sarah’s mission. Surely this is one bet Nathan absolutely can’t lose?

A joyous and vibrant celebration of Prohibition era New York, Guys And Dolls first premiered on Broadway in 1950. This production, which is directed by Gordon Greenberg, premiered at the Chichester Festival Theatre in August 2014.

The musical features music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, with a book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows.
