Show Information

Henry Cyril Paget, 5th Marquis of Anglesey, was one of the Earth’s wealthiest men, until he lost it all by being too damn fabulous. Seiriol Davies’s fierce, hilarious, tragi-gorgeous, ripped-up new musical about being too weird for the world (but desperately not wanting it to forget you) was the solid gold, sparkly-diamond-studded hit of the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe. It now comes to Cardiff in proud association with Pontio, Bangor.

★★★★★ "This musical about a cross-dressing Marquess is a work of genius" The Daily Telegraph
