Valentine's Day is anything but traditional at Elden Street Players. If you're tired of the nauseatingly romantic Valentine's Day entertainment offerings... we may have the perfect evening for you.
Laugh along to TOMFOOLERY: The Words and Music of Tom Lehrer. Sweethearts poisoning wildlife together, practical poetry about having sex in old age, a husband who wants to hold his wife's hand when it's... wholly innappropriate.
Adapted by Cameron Mackintosh (Les Miserables, Cats, Phantom of the Opera) and Robin Ray
Musical Arrangements by Chris Walker and Robert Fisher
Directed by Adriana Hardy
Produced by Susan d. Garvey
