A Penny for a Song
England beware, invasion is imminent! It is 1804 and Napoleon Bonaparte is poised to add our Island to his European Empire. But, fear not, Sir Timothy Bellboys has a cunning plan to thwart the French Emperor with the help of fearless volunteers, all ready and willing (although perhaps not necessarily able).
This superlative play, dating from 1951, is a classic English comedy – farcical, ludicrous and jingoistic, but also warm and charming with thought-provoking ideas on love and war.
