Our first production of this operetta was fairly traditional manner - apart from the fact that the jury consisted of a cricket team forced into service while sheltering from a thunderstorm, and the chorus of ladies insisting on having their picnic in the middle of the court proceedings. However,  Edwin, the defendant, was a golfer so it didn't help his case at all with the cricketing jury!
