Gilbert & Sullivan’s dark musical comedy

Buy Tickets

War hero Colonel Fairfax is to be executed based on false charges made by a villainous relative who stands to inherit his estate. Before his expected death, he marries Elsie, a street performer, who – as his widow – will inherit all and thus thwart the relative. The plot twists, however, when Fairfax, disguised as a Yeoman, is smuggled out of the Tower of London. Add to the mix Elsie’s performing partner who is in love with her, an incompetent jailer, and a crowd of bloodthirsty townsfolk, and we have a dark comedy of love and loss, secrets and lies, choices and consequences.
