The Seattle Gilbert & Sullivan Society proudly presents:

           A true masterpiece of wit and gorgeous music...


Director Ruben van Kempen and Maestro Bernard Kwiram lead a delightful new production of this rollicking comedy - featuring rapturous maidens, handsome and moody poets, a platoon of enthusiastic British Dragoon Guards, and the local milkmaid who throws a wrench in it all!

One of their most successful shows, Patience, or Bunthorne’s Bride showcases both the lyrical genius and keen edge for satire that have made Gilbert & Sullivan household names. But more than just a witty and funny show, the score also boasts some of Sullivan’s most plaintive melodies and beautiful orchestrations!

The Seattle Gilbert & Sullivan Society is absolutely delighted to present this true masterpiece, performing at The Bagley Wright Theatre at Seattle Rep, opening on July 13th and running until July 22nd, 2018.

Patience runs 2 hours and 10 minutes, including intermission.

Performance Dates

       The premise...

Twenty lovesick maidens in the village are besotted with the moody and handsome poet Reginald Bunthorne, but he has eyes only for the simple milkmaid, Patience. The problem? Bunthorne’s artistic ways are all just an act to attract women to him--he doesn’t even like poetry!

Besides, Patience is in love with her childhood sweetheart - a real poet named Archibald Grosvenor - but feels she cannot marry him as he is just too perfect. In the meantime, the serious (and decidedly non-poetic) platoon of Heavy Dragoon Guards that were meant to marry the village maidens find themselves dismayed and perplexed by their sudden loss of prospects.

One of Gilbert & Sullivan's most successful shows, Patience is a delightful satire that pits the straight-laced ideals of the Victorian era against the passions and indulgences of the 1870s Aesthetic Movement, ridiculing each side of the spectrum.
