Bob's Your Uncle

A musical farce in 2 acts by Austin Melford, Music by Noel Gay, Lyrics by Frank Eyton

Saville Theatre, London May 1948 (363 perf)


Two couples, a comical uncle and an amorous mother-in-law go through a whirl of complication and misunderstandings at a wedding reception and a honeymoon hotel.

The story begins in Mayfair with June getting married to rich Hector because the supply of letters from beloved Dick has dried up, though they have actually been intercepted by June's ambitious mother.

Dick, accompanied by nice cousin Sheila, Uncle Bob and (independently) June's mother, follow the newly-weds to their hotel with Dick intent on making a last ditch stand to recover June but eventually, at the end of the confusions prefers Sheila.
