Set sail on the high seas with Gilbert & Sullivan’s beloved comedy of star-crossed lovers, mismatched marriages and mistaken identities.
Award-winning director, Kate Gaul, makes her Hayes Theatre Co debut with this re-imagined, gender-bending, hyper-theatrical and kinky take on this Gilbert & Sullivan classic.
This nautical caper overflows with infectious tunes such as I am the Monarch of the Sea, I’m Called Little Buttercup and He is an Englishman. H.M.S. Pinafore is a sharp satire of the English social hierarchical system of the Victorian age.
Pinafore’s extraordinary popularity was followed by the similar success of a series of Gilbert and Sullivan works, including The Pirates of Penzance and The Mikado. Don’t miss out on this rollicking farce and get set for some hysterical hijinks on the high seas.
A question and answer session will take place after the 11am performance.
