ABOUT THE SHOW

Join the Harvard-Radcliffe Gilbert and Sullivan Players for our fall 2018 production of Patience; or Bunthorne’s Bride! Bunthorne, a sham aesthetic poet, is the apple of every maiden’s eye. But he pines only for Patience, a milkmaid who dislikes his phony poetry and rejects his advances. When Patience reunites with Grosvenor, her childhood love and himself a poet, a fierce conflict arises between the two aesthetes which turns the whole town on its head. Patience is a satire of aestheticism, of pretentiousness, of vanity and of sententiousness, and is the funniest of Gilbert and Sullivan’s collaborations. It showcases William S. Gilbert’s wittiest lyrics, all set to some of Arthur Sullivan’s most memorable music.
