The award-winning team that brought Pirates to Cate Blanchett’s Sydney Theatre take Gilbert & Sullivan below deck during World War II, where the troops set out to entertain each other with a production of one of their most popular tales, HMS Pinafore.
With its infectious tunes and a beautifully constructed libretto it deals with the age old conundrum of love between social classes, a perfect match for director Sasha Regan’s inimitable style: fresh, fast, inventive and fun.
