Seiriol Davies

How To Win Against History

Venue: South Street (Directions)

Thu 23 Nov, 20:00

Advisory age: 14+



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.

WINNER: The Stage Edinburgh Award & Broadway Baby Bobby

"A work of genius" ***** The Daily Telegraph

"Gleeful, ludicrous - a larky collision of Gilbert & Sullivan and Monty Python" **** Time Out
