'Ten Minutes Since', from Hull Savoyards' 2019 production of The Grand Duke
For the first time in their 85 year history, Hull Savoyards present THE GRAND DUKE, by Gilbert and Sullivan
This exciting new setting moves the action to America’s Old West and the small, isolated town of Pfennig-Halbpfennig, led by the intractable and grumpy Sherif Rudolph, the ‘Grand Duke’. A local theatre troupe take it upon themselves to overthrow the despot and replace him with their manager, Ernest Dumkopf, but things don’t go to plan. Instead, Ludwig, their leading comedian, ends up in the role and married to four women at the same time, with hilarious consequences!
Featuring shot-gun weddings, card games and duels at high noon.
