Iolanthe was performed by LOpSoc in February 2015 at the Annex Theatre

One of LOpSoc's more radical productions, this was a modernisation of the G&S operetta, updated to 1982 and gender-swapped.

The production went on to be performed at the 22nd International G&S Festival in Harrogate, where it won 3 awards: Best Director, Best Costumes and Best Character Actress.
