Bill Snibson, a Lambeth costermonger, is revealed to be the new Earl of Hareford and his newly-discovered aristocratic relations are horrified. Bringing him to Hareford Hall, they attempt to educate Bill into the ways of the gentry and to separate him from his cockney girlfriend Sally. The result? Chaos of the most comical kind! With a host of hilarious characters, witty one-liners and several toe-tapping, uplifting songs (including the famous 'Lambeth Walk', 'The Sun Has Got His Hat On', and 'Leaning on a Lamppost') 'Me and My Girl' is a sublime and sunny treat for all fans of musical theatre!
This version of the show, with its revised book by Stephen Fry, was first presented at the Leicester Haymarket Theatre in 1985 in a hugely popular production starring Robert Lindsay and Emma Thompson which later transferred to the Adelphi Theatre in London where it enjoyed an extremely long and successful run.
