Harvard-Radcliffe Gilbert & Sullivan Players present The Pirates of Penzance; or, The Slave of Duty - October 27-November 5, 2017


This Fall, the Pirates of Penzance will be set in the mobster scene of 1940s New York. On the shores of Coney Island, a group of mobsters celebrates Frederic, a young gang member whose debt to the Mob Boss is almost over. He plans on leaving the mafia and tells the mobsters that, when he is gone, he will work to destroy them. Later, Frederic meets Mabel, a young, beautiful lady and daughter of the Major-General, and asks her to marry him. The operetta then follows Frederic’s struggle between duty to the mafia and duty to his own ideals, with appearances from and altercations among the mobsters, police, daughters, and Major-General.
