In this 1981 Joe Papp production of the Gilbert and Sullivan favourite, Frederic - who has spent his formative years as a junior pirate - plans to mark his 21st birthday by breaking free from the Pirate King and beginning his courtship of Mabel. However, as he was born on 29th February (a date that only arrives every fourth year), Frederic isn't technically 21 - and the Pirate King is still his master. Unless something gives, Frederic will soon be on a collision course with the Pirate King's new nemesis: Mabel's father.
