Tobacco Factory Theatres is partnering up with the brilliant Wardrobe Theatre to bring you this critically acclaimed comedy musical by the gobsmackingly talented Seiriol Davies. This is one not to be missed by fans of Tim Minchin, Hedwig and the Angry Inch or Flight of the Conchords.

Henry Cyril Paget was one of the Earth’s wealthiest men, until he lost it all by being too damn fabulous. The 5th Marquis of Anglesey blew his family’s colossal fortune on diamond frocks, lilac-dyed poodles and putting on simply amazing plays to which nobody came, causing a very 19th century scandal. His fabulous flame burned brightly, briefly and transvestitely until he died at just 29, after which his outraged family destroyed every record of him ever having had existed.

Seiriol Davies’s fierce and tragi-gorgeous new musical is a true story of being too weird for the world but desperately not wanting it to forget you. A frothy, glossy costume drama musical about expectations, manliness, disappointment and the stories we tell to convince ourselves it’s all going well, and the moments we realise it’s not.

How To Win Against History was the solid gold, sparkly-diamond-studded hit of Edinburgh Fringe 2016 and winner of The Stage Edinburgh Award and Broadway Baby Bobby.
