The Jersey Gilbert and Sullivan Society

Cox and Box

‘Cox and Box’ was performed by the society in 1991.  

A production at 16 New street in October 2022 was performed by members of the society but wasn’t actually a Society production.

The piece is not by Gilbert and Sullivan, pre-dating ‘Trial by Jury’ by nine years.  The composer was Sullivan, but the author was Francis Burnand, later Sir Francis.  He wrote for "Punch" for almost fifty years and was the Editor for twenty-five of them.  By coincidence, he was born in the same month as Gilbert, but eleven days later.
