An Áine Flanagan, Seiriol Davies and Young Vic co-production

Henry Cyril Paget, 5th Marquis of Anglesey, was one of the Earth’s wealthiest men, until he lost it all by being too damn fabulous.

Seiriol Davies’s fierce, hilarious, tragi-gorgeous, ripped-up new musical about being too weird for the world (but desperately not wanting it to forget you) was the solid gold, sparkly-diamond-studded hit of the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe.

★★★★★ “A work of genius” – The Daily Telegraph

★★★★ “Gleeful, ludicrous – a larky collision of Gilbert & Sullivan and Monty Python” – Time Out

★★★★★ “This musical about a cross-dressing Marquess is a work of genius” The Daily Telegraph
