The Coily Dart Theatre Company Gilbert and Sullivan's Improbable New Musical: Less Miserable

Musicals & Opera


In an afterlife, Gilbert brags to Sullivan that, as fathers of the modern musical, all new musicals are basically just variations on their own plots! Sullivan challenges him to tell the story of the world's longest-running musical using only their own songs. Gilbert agrees, but only if he can make some changes to ensure an implausibly happy ending! Expect all the Gilbertian elements: an abandoned baby, ridiculous disguises and love at first sight, alongside music from every operetta and the usual silly dances. Book early. Coily Dart’s last Fringe show sold out!

This show was part of our 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Programme
