About the Show:

COX AND BOX
A delightful farce set in a Victorian bed-sitter. Mr Cox and Mr Box do not know each other, even though they share a single room in a lodging house. Cox works by day and Box works by night, and their unscrupulous landlord, Mr Bouncer, collects rent from both of them. One day, Cox returns early from work and discovers a stranger in his room. Chaos ensues!
TRIAL BY JURY
The very first of the surviving G&S comic operas. Edwin, a dastardly young “scamp of a rover”, is being sued by Angelina for breach of promise of marriage. Even before he appears in court, he has been found guilty by all present, and when the “tragic”, jilted bride arrives, everyone, the judge included, falls in love with her. All seems lost for Edwin, but he has a trick or two up his sleeve…
