Synopsis


The 5th Marquis of Anglesey, Henry Cyril Paget, was one of the world's wealthiest men.


By the time of his death in 1905, aged just 29, he had spent the family fortune on luxurious clothes and mounting lavish theatrical productions casting himself in the lead role.


Writer, composer and performer Seiriol Davies pieces together this little-known glittering life and ignominious demise in an outrageously fun, satirical and mischievous musical.
