This brand new production of The Sorcerer, Gilbert and Sullivan’s first success, moves the story from its quaint Victorian setting to sleepy rural Britain in the 1970s. John Wellington Wells, the celebrated dealer in ‘magic and spells’, spreads chaos and havoc in an unsuspecting country village when he places a powerful aphrodisiac in the village hall teapot. The resulting revelations are indeed ‘a marvellous illusion, a terrible surprise!’
