This is the show that Gilbert and Sullivan might have written, if the Fringe (and the term ‘musical’) had been around in their day. Set at the Edinburgh Fringe, two companies go to extreme lengths to secure good reviews. The plot includes the usual Gilbertian elements: an abandoned baby, sense of duty, love across ranks and an implausible, contrived finale. Unusual flat-sharing arrangements and a magic lozenge complete the picture. All-new lyrics, set to Sullivan’s music (featuring music from all the operettas), are accompanied by the usual quota of silly dances.
