Description


Full Length Musical

Henry Cyril Paget, 5th Marquis of Anglesey (1875 - 1905) was born to inherit the Empire. Instead, he burned brightly, briefly and transvestitely through his family’s vast wealth; putting on fabulous plays starring him. When he died, his vengeful heirs burned every trace of his existence they could find, and carried on as though he’d never been. Ouch.

But it’s cool; Henry’s going to explain everything. And don’t worry, this will not be in any way an arty or difficult show. In fact, it’s going to be totally, utterly mainstream.
