22nd, 23rd, 24th March 2012

BUSOM present their main show of the year, Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe, a lively satirical comedy that pokes fun at the whole political system of this glorious nation of ours!

Banished for Twenty-Five years for marrying a mortal, beautiful fairy Iolanthe returns from her watery prison still looking only seventeen years old, but her youth and beauty cause trouble when her half mortal son Strephon, can’t convince his fiancĂ©e Phyllis that the girl she discovers him with is his real mother! Phyllis decides to marry a lord instead… And the Fairy Queen has to meddle in politics to set things right, even reuniting Iolanthe with Strephon’s father- the Lord Chancellor.
