About the Book

Henry Cyril Paget, 5th Marquis of Anglesey (1875 - 1905) was born to inherit the Empire. Instead, he burned brightly, briefly and transvestitely through his family’s vast wealth; putting on fabulous plays starring him. When he died, his vengeful heirs burned every trace of his existence they could find, and carried on as though he’d never been. Ouch.

This Songbook Edition contains the fully-transcribed piano and vocal arrangements for all fourteen songs from the show, so you can have a sherry and sing any of the glamorous roles: Prophetic Ghost! Prominent aesthete Lord Berners! Person from Didcot! etc.
