GSOV presents a hilarious comedic play by W.S. Gilbert about the everlasting perils of love, marriage and money.
Cheviot Hill is the central figure of the piece – who is continually falling in love at the drop of a hat. His romantic inconstancy is of intense pecuniary interest to two other men: Belvawney, who receives £1,000 a year as long as Cheviot remains unmarried; and Mr. Symperson, who shall receive £1,000 a year once Cheviot is either wed or dead.
This hilarious farce was the inspiration for Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. It is equally witty, clever, and great fun.
Recorded at Malvern Theatre on 23rd November 2019
