Finding your perfect partner takes lots of G&S patience

They need a little patience...Wolverton G&S Society

Wolverton Gilbert & Sullivan Society present the comic opera Patience, from Tuesday.

Stacked high with laughter and music, Patience is one of those ‘suitable for the whole family’ affairs.

It’s the 1920s, and the society ladies are mad for two young poets.

Unfortunately for the ladies, the prose-players are both sweet on Patience, the village milkmaid.

The young ladies’ rugby-playing suitors see no point to the poetry, but try their hand at it, in a bid to win back the ladies’ hearts.

We aren’t really spoiling the show when we tell you that before the curtain falls on the show, everyone will have hooked up with a suitable partner.

Patience has wit, charm and a delightfully complicated love triangle; it is a typical G&S affair, which has a giggle at an element of English society that takes itself far too seriously.

The Graham Breeze directed delight airs at 7.30pm nightly through to Saturday, March 29.
