Trial by Jury

Trial by Jury satirises the procedure in an average breach of promise, and also the insincerity which may sometimes underlie the pose of "respectability." Everything done or sung is ludicrous, and yet beneath it all lies a recognisable substratum of truth. The piece is a riot of laughter. The Judge's ditty, "When first, my friends, I was called to the Bar," is the best-known comic song in the English language. Cape Town Gilbert and Sullivan will have you rolling in the aisles with their modern spin on this classic comic opera.
