After the sell-out performances of Iolanthe last year, the G&S society is returning to Cornwall for its summer tour to the Minack Theatre in Cornwall - the famous and fantastic outdoor theatre hewn into the cliffs at Porthcurno, near Lands End. This year's production will be Princess Ida. Inspired by our very own Girton College, this thrilling musical, based on Tennyson's celebrated poem The Princess, takes a satirical romp through the women's education movement to include knights who strip to music, three cross-dressing noblemen and a bevy of repressed and beautiful maidens (the best kind), all set across the vivid landscape of two incompetent, warring Kings.
