Guys & Dolls

  • The Barn Theatre 5 Beeches Road Cirencester, England, GL7 1BN United Kingdom (map)

Guys and Dolls is a musical romantic comedy involving the unlikeliest of Manhattan pairings: a high-rolling gambler and a puritanical missionary, a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a crap game manager who is anything but.

It tells of con-man Nathan Detroit’s efforts to find new life for notorious, crap game, much to the despair of his long-suffering fiance Miss Adelaide. When their trusty venue is found out by the police, Nathan has to find a new home game quickly, but he needs money. Enter Sky Masterson, a high-rolling gambler willing to take on any honest bet with a high enough reward attached. Nathan bets Sky that he can’t take the 'doll' of Nathan’s choosing to Havana, Cuba, with him on a date. 

When Sky agrees to the bet, Nathan chooses uptight missionary Sergeant Sarah Brown. Sky thinks he’s been duped, but he’s in for even more of a surprise when his efforts to woo Sarah are so successful that he falls in love with her himself!
