Gilbert and Sullivan's famous opera starring Jo Brand. Read More >

Orphaned pirates, flat-footed policemen and a bevy of blushing beauties (the daughters of Major General Stanley) all feature in one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most famous operas.

Elegantly recreating the orginal period settings and costumes, this acclaimed production combines Sullivan’s popular score with what has to be the most topsy-turvy of all Gilbert’s plots.

Starring Jo Brand, who recreates her West End performance as the first ever female Sergeant of Police.
