Description

Love is complicated. Twenty heartsick maidens fight for the love of an overblown poet, but the poet pines for a milkmaid. A platoon of dragoons can’t stand the wafty wordsmith, but adores the maidens. The milkmaid doesn’t know what love is, but she’s learning... fast. Gilbert and Sullivan’s Patience aims its razor-sharp satire at the aesthetic movement (the hipsters of their day) in a tale of romance and the Romantic. Edinburgh company Cat-Like Tread returns for a fifth year at the Fringe, bringing Victorian operetta to life for a modern audience. ‘Careful execution and straightforward fun’ (AllEdinburghTheatre.com).
