An all-male production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s political fairytale, Iolanthe.
Regarded as Sir Arthur Sullivan’s most beautiful score, Iolanthe is a topsy-turvy love story involving fairies and members of the House of Lords. A perfectly pertinent story for today, where a coalition is wittily struck between the Liberals and the Conservatives, this is a political fairy tale that only Gilbert and Sullivan could conceive.
This production of Iolanthe played last year at the Union theatre.
