Gilbert and Sullivan's naval lark aboard the HMS Pinafore is a tale of class pomposity and star-crossed love, not to mention catchy tunes. Ralph, a lowly sailor, is in love with the Captain's daughter Josephine, and she with he. But the Admiral plans to marry Josephine, while the Captain has his eye on a pretty dockside trader. With marriage across the social divide simply not done, will this sorry crew ever be happy?

 

About Hackney Empire

Renowned East London entertainment venue designed by celebrated architect Frank Matcham. Stan Laurel and Charlie Chaplin both trod the boards here in the Hackney Empire's music hall heyday but the unique domed building was reduced to being used as a bingo hall for much of the 60s and 70s.
