Regan De Wynter Williams’ award-winning and hilariously funny take on the much-loved classic The Pirates of Penzance (20 February – 16 March) arrives at Wilton’s fresh from a hugely popular tour in Australia, which saw the production play Cate Blanchett’s Sydney Theatre. Now back in London, the all-male cast effervescently and joyously tell Gilbert and Sullivan’s much-loved tale of a child adopted by a band of tender-hearted orphaned pirates in an inventive and brilliant night of theatre.
From a revival of an opera classic to an insanely brilliant fusion of two more, the Olivier Award-winning Godfathers of alternative cabaret.
The tale of a child apprenticed to a band of tender-hearted, orphaned pirates was an immediate triumph for Gilbert and Sullivan and remains their most popular and successful work.
