All aboard for a murderous musical mystery tour!

“The masters of G&S in small spaces” present this brand new, side-splitting spoof of the classic railway mystery. A trio of intriguing travellers (and a pianist) take on multiple characters, uncover clue upon red herring, while ripping through the G&S operettas with a cake soaked butter knife, all aboard the G&S Express. Get ready to be swept away on this Topsy-turvy journey – from Penzance to Titipu, from Venice to the Tower of London, from Portsmouth to Fairyland – in a brand new story packed with references from every single G&S operetta. This highly inventive, witty murder mystery spoof is splattered with favourite songs 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!

★★★★★ “An irresistible staging” – The Stage
★★★★★ “From the opening explosion of energy this is a show that knows where it’s heading, and that’s to five-star heaven” – What’s On Stage
