About the musical:

In the 1930s, the Harefords, a family of haughty aristocrats, are seeking the legitimate heir to the title of Earl of Hareford. Bill Snibson, a Cockney from Lambeth is found and named as the long-lost 'Earl of Hareford'. It seems that the 13th Earl had secretly and briefly wed a girl from a bad neighborhood. But Bill's rough Cockney ways do not satisfy the Will of the last Earl: In order to gain his inheritance of the title and estate, Bill must satisfy the very proper executors (Maria, Duchess, and Sir John) by learning gentlemanly manners. The Duchess thinks that she can make Bill 'fit and proper', but not his Cockney girlfriend, Sally Smith. The Duchess plans a party in Bill's honour, but Sally is not to be invited. Sir John tells Sally that she and Bill ought to return to Lambeth, but he is moved by Sally's heartfelt declaration of love for Bill.


"A side-splittingly funny, laugh-out-loud, feel-good show…" and having attended this show on opening night with a packed Hall I can say that it is extremely well done and a very enjoyable night of entertainment. It is a fast moving and melodious musical and Transition Year contains excellent voices for this year’s show. You should make an effort to get there and this is not just for music buffs as there is plenty of comedy, style and sets to enjoy too.
