Iolanthe, a fairy, commits the ultimate crime by marrying a mortal and is banished from fairyland. 25 years later, and her illicit half-human, half-fairy son (a fairy from the waist upwards) now wishes to marry a mortal – but it's a crime against fairy law. Having fallen foul of this law herself - Iolanthe sets out to help her son, and obtain a pardon for herself from the fairy queen.

Strephon loves Phyllis, a ward of the Lord Chancellor who is not keen on the young lovers proposed marriage. Chaos ensues - driven by misunderstandings, snobbery, misdirected jealousy, a bit of romance, and a healthy satirical dose of poking fun at the law, parliament and the establishment, including a fairy takeover of the House of Lords.

All ends happily, as always - with Lords and Fairies, Peers and Peris, united.
