On the Fiddle
by Mrs Evelyn Cavendish
Nanki-Poo, on the run from Katisha an elderly lady of his fathers court, falls in love with Yum-Yum who is herself about to be married to Ko-Ko the newly appointed Lord High Executioner. Ko-Ko has only recently been reprieved from prison and, as the Mikado is about to visit and wants to see an execution, may have to cut his own head off. Chop-chop wants to wield his weapon, Pooh-Bah will confirm any lie for a substantial bribe, Ric Shaw wants to be paid and Miss Prodworthy is determined to catalogue every banana in the Orient. Unsurprisingly mayhem and confusion rein….. and any resemblance to Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado is, surely, a figment of your imagination!! There’s no music or singing for heavens sake.
