How to Win Against History: Songbook Edition

Seiriol Davies

Paperback spiral bound (01 Aug 2017)

Henry Cyril Paget, 5th Marquis of Anglesey (1875 - 1905) was born to inherit the Empire. Instead, he burned brightly, briefly and transvestitely through his family’s vast wealth; putting on fabulous plays starring him. When he died, his vengeful heirs burned every trace of his existence they could find, and carried on as though he’d never been. Ouch.

 This Songbook Edition contains the fully-transcribed piano and vocal arrangements for all fourteen songs from the show, so you can have a sherry and sing any of the glamorous roles: Prophetic Ghost! Prominent aesthete Lord Berners! Person from Didcot! etc.

'This verbally intricate, witty show... tries on musical styles in the way that Henry himself tried on dresses and identities... like Henry himself, the show is a complete one-off: a little bit weird, totally absurd, often hilarious and very, very sparkly.' Guardian ★★★★
