About the show

Arthur Kipps is an orphan who makes good when he inherits a fortune unexpectedly. With coin in his pocket, a spring in his step, and a brand new banjo, Arthur’s off to climb the social ladder and make the most of a life he never expected to be able to lead.

Based on H G Wells’ semi-autobiographical novel Kipps: The Story of a Simple Soul, this transfer from the Chichester Festival Theatre has already had audiences on its feet night after night!
