Eastbourne G&S: Iolanthe

Details

Gilbert & Sullivan's Iolanthe Fairies and Lords come head to head in this musical comedy with a fantastical twist. Iolanthe is an exiled fairy, banished for 25 years by the fairy queen, for marrying a mortal - a crime under fairy law. Her half-fairy son, Strephon, is in love with Phyllis, but she is the ward of the Lord Chancellor. When Strephon becomes a member of Parliament, and the fairies infiltrate the House of Lords, the world of politics is thrown into disarray. Can the two sides be reconciled? Will Phyllis and Strephon find their happily ever after? What will be Iolanthe's fate? Don't miss this joyous, and still rather topical, political satire!
