From Plato to Proust to Hemingway, no sacred cow goes unscathed. Known for beloved shows like The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) and The Complete History of America (Abridged), this "trio of modern Marx Brothers" (Boston Herald) have appeared on PBS and National Public Radio, and are London's longest-running comedy troupe.

A musical by Tony and Olivier Award-winner John Caird (Nicholas Nickleby, Les Miserables) and Tony nominee Paul Gordon (Jane Eyre). Set in the early 1900s, this exquisitely moving story is the vivid account of a young orphan girl as she blossoms into a beautiful, intelligent and vivacious woman. A trustee of the John Grier Orphanage offers a proper education to the 18-year-old Jerusha. The benefactor’s only requirements are that Jerusha never know his identity, and that she write him monthly (though he will not respond). She sees him once in shadows and invents a nickname for her mysterious patron–Daddy Long Legs. Her letters to him paint a moving portrait of her lonely life in the orphanage, and the development of her mind and spirit.
