On the Fiddle
Based on The Mikado by Gilbert and Sullivan
and outrageously plagiarised by Mrs Evelyn Cavendish
Directed by Ian Guy
Was performed 10th - 14th December 2013 at The Shed.
Nanki-Poo, on the run from Katisha an elderly lady of his fathers court, falls in love with Yum-Yum who is herself about to be married to Ko-Ko the newly appointed Lord High Executioner.
Ko-Ko has only recently been reprieved from prison and, as the Mikado is about to visit and wants to see an execution, may have to cut his own head off.
Chop-Chop wants to wield his weapon, Pooh-Bah will confirm any lie for a substantial bribe, Ric Shaw wants to be paid and Miss Prodworthy is determined to catalogue every banana in the Orient!
Unsurprisingly mayhem and confusion rein…
