After the Emperor of Japan, The Mikado, decrees that flirting is punishable by death, the town of Titipu appoints Ko-Ko, a cheap tailor already condemned to death, as the Lord High Executioner, so that no executions can happen until after he has executed himself. Nanki-Poo, a wandering minstrel arrives, looking for Yum-Yum, Ko-Ko's ward, with whom he fell in love with a year ago. Discovering Yum-Yum is to wed Ko-Ko that day, Nanki-Poo decides to kill himself. The plot continues with a series of deceptions and misunderstandings, will everyone escape death?
Reflecting an 1880s British craze for "all things Japanese", The Mikado, Gilbert and Sullivan's ninth collaboration features songs such as A Wand'ring Minstrel I and Three Little Maids From School are we, has become one of the most frequently performed pieces of musical theatre of all time and remains a firm favourite with performers and audiences alike.

Remember your school days? The dreaded detentions, snogging behind the bike sheds and breaktime bust-ups?! Well prepare to be catapulted back to the classroom and take a raw and riotous look at life in a typical British school, in this classic comedy from BAFTA winner John Godber.
Meet the staff; the trendy young Drama teacher making his shaky debut; the Deputy Head who rules the school with an iron rod; the gentle Humanities teacher who is desperate for a quiet life; Doug, the grumpy old Caretaker, and the Headmistress - a boisterous battleaxe and some-time Amateur Dramatics star! And prepare yourselves for the pupils; a wayward mob of disruptive delinquents - determined to wreck havoc, hormones and horror throughout the school!
Nostalgia, mischief and mayhem reign supreme in this classic classroom drama!
