About the Show
Iolanthe focuses on Strephon, a half mortal and half immortal shepherd. Strephon hides this mysterious secret from his love, Phyllis, who is adored not only by Strephon but by the entirety of the House of Lords including the Lord Chancellor himself. When Phyllis catches Strephon with his mother, Iolanthe, who on account of being immortal looks the same age as Strephon, chaos and confusion ensues.
