Adapted by David William and Benny Green from the play The Admirable Bashville by George Bernard Shaw;
Music by Denis King. Lyrics by Benny Green
Leaving George Bernard Shaw's play, The Admirable Bashville, almost intact, Denis King and Benny Green added satirical songs and musical numbers. Not only was this the first musical to be performed at the Open Air Theatre, it was the first time that Bashville had been staged. Under the direction of David William, its success in 1983 led to a return the following season and an Olivier award nomination.
