Huddersfield Gilbert & Sullivan Society

This sparkling satire on the House of Lords as a bastion of the ineffective, privileged and dim witted political party system is still pertinent today. Iolanthe, a fairy, is allowed to return after being banished for the crime of marrying a mortal.

 

Unfortunately, her half-human, half-fairy son is also facing difficulty with the Lord Chancellor, who will not grant permission for him to marry his love, Phyllis. But the fairies agree to help him, despite the opposition of the entire British Parliament.

 

Huddersfield’s own Gilbert & Sullivan Society return performing this heart-warming, frothy confection of biting social satire and innocent sentiment.
