WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In Iolanthe, a wonderfully wicked and still relevant satire of two-party government, the title character, a fairy, returns to the fold 25 years after being banished from Fairyland for marrying a mortal. She seeks protection for her now-grown son, who is half-fairy and half-mortal, and her Queen grants him a title in the House of Lords. When he falls in love with the fetching young ward of the Lord Chancellor, both Fairyland and Parliament nearly fall to pieces.
