'G&S meets Agatha Christie meets Monty Python' ★★★★ Spy in the Stalls 

After last summer’s five star success with
Patience the award winning ‘masters of Gilbert & Sullivan in small spaces’ return to Wilton’s with their side-splitting murder mystery spoof, which features every single G&S opera in 75 minutes of madcap tomfoolery.

Get ready to be swept away on a Topsy-turvy journey from Cornwall to Chancery Lane, from Titipu to the Tower of London, from Portsmouth to Fairyland, as a dubious detective, intriguing travellers -
and a pianist - uncover clues upon red herrings in this inventive, witty - and downright extraordinary - murder mystery.

Express G&S
is splattered with favourite ballads, songs and snatches from the Savoy operas including ‘The Pirates of Penzance’, ‘The Mikado’ and ‘H.M.S. Pinafore’, as well as from those less performed, such as ‘The Sorcerer,’ ‘Princess Ida’ and ‘Utopia Ltd’.

All aboard the G&S Express - destination: Murder!
