Michaelmas Week 7
Starry-eyed young lovers Alexis and Aline wish everyone in their village could be as happily besotted as they are. In a moment of inspiration, they decide to hire John Wellington Wells, a distinguished representative of a highly respectable London firm of sorcerers, to brew a love-potion for their fellow citizens. It remains only to slip the potion into the tea at the wedding feast—but though the villagers fall in love, they do so with the first person the see, no matter who it is! Will magical love win through? Or are the villagers doomed to a life of joyless love?
The Sorcerer is a funny, touching, exciting and altogether wonderful comic operetta, and the Gilbert and Sullivan society is proud to present it as the Freshers' show of 2017!
