of The Durham Savoyards, Ltd.
The Flowers of Progress
Having a rather idealistic view of England and the English people,
King Paramount of the south sea island of Utopia decides that his
people should adopt all English customs and fashions, and that the
kingdom should become a company limited.
Utopia, Limited opened on October 7, 1893, at the Savoy
Theatre and ran for 245 performances.
