Show poster from The Highborn and the Hobo 2011

The Highborn and the Hobo; or, The Mining Magnates Daughter, was performed by LOpSoc on 15th - 18th June 2011 at the Annex Theatre in conjunction with The Fall of the House of Usher 2011.

An original production with libretto by LOpSoc members Phill Moxley and Harry Campbell and music by Jolly Felton - a multimedia opera in one act with all proceeds going to Charity.

Lonnie Choke (David Turner) is the only son of a wealthy machine merchant, and was betrothed in infancy to the daughter of a wealthy mining magnate, Corsica Whistle (Becky Thomas). Both parents believed it bad luck to see the bride at all before the actual wedding day, and so the two have never actually met. Distraught at the prospect of living his life with someone he has never met, and who could be hideously ugly or dreadfully boring, Lonnie runs away and joins a group of vagrants living under a London overpass....
