Handbags at dawn! A bunch of nice, though clearly neurotic, middle class ladies abandon military fiancées and explore their obsession with a trendy young poet, with hilarious consequences. Gilbert’s biting satire on fame and pretension is just as relevant today as when it was written, and Sullivan’s sparkling tunes will have you humming all the way home. Sensitively updated to the 1950s, while respecting the original, the show is directed by Simon Moss, who created our award-nominated The Yeomen of the Guard in2013. This Patience is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
