Iolanthe

For the established Gilbert and Sullivan fans as well as those newbies who have yet to discover the slightly bizarre delights of these Edwardian musical bonbons. Staged by the enthusiastic and talented people from the Uni of Birmingham G&S society.

Dive into a dewdrop, nestle in a nutshell and gambol upon gossamer with the University of Birmingham’s Gilbert and Sullivan Society as they transport you into a fairy ring full of dancing and singing.

Iolanthe, the fairy, has been banished from the fairy kingdom because she married a mortal. Her half-fairy, half mortal son called Strephon is in love with the much-admired Phyllis, but they can’t marry without getting the Lord Chancellor’s consent, who wants Phyllis for himself! When Phyllis spots Strephon and his young-looking mother together, much outrage and hilarity ensues! Will Phyllis and Strephon get their happily ever after? And is love in store for anyone else?

This is an outdoor production, so feel free to bring a picnic blanket and a picnic. This is a child-friendly production, with fairy-themed activities for the children starting an hour prior to the start of the show.
