Cambridge University Gilbert and Sullivan Society: The Mikado

19th November 2014 @ 8:00 PM - 22nd November 2014 @ 2:00 PM

Set in the topsy-turvy Japanese town of Titipu, ‘The Mikado’ combines biting social commentary with dark gallows humour to tell the story of Nanki-Poo, the son of the Mikado who disguises himself as a wandering minstrel in order to escape the romantic attentions of the elderly Katisha.

In his travels he encounters and falls in love with the lovely Yum-Yum, one of three little maids who are the wards of Ko-Ko, the town executioner. Ko-Ko is engaged to Yum-Yum himself, but is distracted from his wedding plans by the royal decree that he must execute someone within a month… and Nanki-Poo seems like a good candidate.

‘The Mikado’ is presented by Brickhouse Theatre Company in association with the Cambridge University Gilbert and Sullivan Society.
