Love is complicated. Twenty heartsick maidens fight for the love of an overblown poet, but the poet pines for a milkmaid. A platoon of dragoons cant stand the wafty wordsmith, but adores the maidens. The milkmaid doesnt know what love is, but shes learning... fast. Gilbert and Sullivans Patience aims its razor-sharp satire at the aesthetic movement (the hipsters of their day) in a tale of romance and the Romantic. Edinburgh company Cat-Like Tread returns for a fifth year at the Fringe, bringing Victorian operetta to life for a modern audience. Careful execution and straightforward fun (AllEdinburghTheatre.com).
