Description

Expulsion, electioneering and enchantment. Iolanthe takes Gilbert’s satirical wit to parliament and Sullivan’s score to fairyland. Strephon loves Phyllis, a ward of the Lord Chancellor, but his dubious heritage stands in the way of their happiness. Can his suspiciously youthful aunts help him into a political maelstrom to win the girl? Is the House of Lords ready for a fairy member? Cat-Like Tread are back for the 2019 Fringe with the most magical operetta of the Gilbert and Sullivan canon. Join us to find out if love can prevail in stormy political waters despite deep divisions and meddling monarchs.
