Main Stage Production
A country village is thrown into turmoil when the heir to the manor arranges for the communal teapot to be drugged so that all can share in his happiness at being in love.
Now months later, still recovering from the injuries she sustained in the ensuing crash, Julia is visited by Margaret, who apparently knows nothing of the affair. This results in some alarming couplings, and the sorcerer who supplies the potion has to attempt a speedy escape.
The village vicar finds himself in a love triangle, and all is in doubt until the final scene.
Operatic arias such as “Oh happy young heart” and “Thou hast the power” are matched by the patter song “My name is John Wellington Wells” and the choruses of the villagers as they find themselves in unexpected situations.
