Union Theatre all male Patience

Following last year's success with their all-male Iolanthe, Sasha Regan and the Union Theatre, Southark are presenting an all-male Patience:
After Pirates & Iolanthe, Union stages all-male Patience

Following its award winning production of The Pirates of Penzance and last year's Iolanthe, the Union Theatre in Southwark is staging another all-male interpretation of a Gilbert and Sullivan classic, Patience.

The new production, which opens on 17 February (previews from 15 February), will be directed by Union artistic director Sasha Regan, with choreography by Drew McOnie, musical direction by Michael England and design by Kingsley Hall....
The production runs at the Union until 10th March. More details at the What's on Stage website.

I wonder if our 'love-sick maidens' will be able to out-cry theirs when we put our production on in May ; -).
