"The Shah of Persia is feeling low," according to press notes. "So to lift his spirits he’s off to Vienna with his Eunuch in tow for some new adventures. He promptly falls in love with the Empress of the Empire, much to the dismay of her husband, so a resident of the local brothel – who is a double for the Empress – is substituted for a night of passion. But she’s in love with a Baron, who’s having an affair with the Soap Manufacturer’s Wife."
The production will feature set design by Beowulf Boritt, costume design by Judy Dolan, lighting by Howell Binkley and sound by Gareth Owen.
