This brand new stage adaptation of Half a Sixpence is adapted from H.G. Wells's semi- autobiographical novel 'Kipps: The Story of a Simple Soul', and reunites book-writer Julian Fellowes with composers George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. The score features a number of David Heneker's original songs including 'Flash Bang Wallop', 'Money To Burn' and 'Half A Sixpence', and has been expanded to create new musical set pieces.
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.
