By W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan

    Michaelmas Week 5

    Bunthorne is a poet, hipster and Instagram influencer whose name looms large on campus. Everybody worships both his poetry and his person – everybody except Patience, the one person Bunthorne loves apart from himself. Patience runs the campus cafe and cares nothing for poetry, to Bunthorne’s dismay. But when the beautiful Grosvenor appears on the scene, things are about to be turned on their heads: will Bunthorne’s fame endure a rival? Our updated ‘Patience’ brings Gilbert’s parody of aestheticism (think Oscar Wilde) triumphantly into the 21st century: there’s an array of hipsters and footballers, queer and trans characters, and octave-blind casting, which means all performers will have the chance to sing some of Sullivan’s catchiest tunes.
