About the show

Starring newcomers Charlie Stemp as 'Arthur Kipps' and Devon-Elise Johnson as 'Ann Pornick' - alongside three times Olivier-nominated actress Emma Williams as 'Helen Walsingham' and Vivien Parry as 'Mrs Walsingham'.

Arthur Kipps, an orphan and over-worked draper's assistant at the turn of the last century, unexpectedly inherits a fortune that propels him into high society. His childhood companion, Ann Pornick, watches with dismay as Arthur is made over in a new image by the beautiful and classy Helen Walsingham. Both young women undoubtedly love Arthur - but which of them should he listen to? With the help of his friends, Arthur learns that if you want to have the chance of living the right life, you need to make the right choices.
