Gilbert, broughT Lovingly to the stage by The OrNate Johnsons' David Mounfield and Brian Mitchell.Now immortalised for his partnership with composer Sir Arthur Sullivan, Gilbert was, in his own right, a renowned playwright and comic writer and a master of "Nonsense" verse. For the first time and on the 180th anniversary of his birth, three of his funniest tales and two of the best-loved Bab Ballads take the stage in this inventive new adaptation by Brighton duo Mitchell & Nixon, writers of the hit shows Those Magnificent Men and Big Daddy Vs. Giant Haystacks. Performed by Radio 4 regular David Mounfield, who continues his long association with Great British Bake Off's Mel Giedroyc in Count Arthur Strong's Radio Show in brand new R4 comedy series Rum Bunch, and Brian Mitchell (Those Magnificent Men and The OrNate Johnsons), Gilbert (No Sullivan) is the perfect night out for dedicated 'Savoyards' and a great introduction for the uninitiated to one of England's wittiest writers.
