Phyllis & Strephon

Synopsis

Act I opens with the fairies dancing and singing. But since Iolanthe was banished by the Fairy Queen for marrying a mortal 25 years previously its not been much fun. They appeal to the Fairy Queen, who having a great fondness for Iolanthe herself, welcomes her back with forgiveness. Iolanthe announces that she has a son Strephon, an actor, who is half a fairy and in love with Phyllis, Diary Secretary and a Ward in Chancery. Strephon appears and declares that he will marry Phyllis today even without the Lord Chancellors consent.

Phyllis then arrives, followed soon after by the Lord Chancellor and his peerage chums. Chaos ensures with the Fairy Queen and her charges wreaking havock on the haughty Lords. In true G&S style, the whole mess is brought to a satisfactory conclusion by the end of Act 2.
