Event Details

Phyllis is in a pickle. She can’t bear the thought of marrying any member of the House of Lords, the men whose hearts she has unwittingly captured. She dreams of young Strephon, the lowly and humble Shepherd. Little does she know, Strephon is actually half fairy, and his mother is one of the most beloved fairies in the land. Unaware he’s meddling with spirits from a realm beyond, The Lord Chancellor will stop at nothing to split up Strephon and Phyllis…

Fresh from their sell-out Edinburgh Fringe production of HMS Pinafore, the University of St Andrews’ Best Society (2017 to 2018) is back with another hilarious satire of love, politics and mystical happenings.


(Thursday) 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
