The story of "The Pirates of Penzance" follows a familiar Gilbert and Sullivan narrative of thwarted love, disguised identities combined with a gentle mocking of Victorian class and status.

Frederick, the romantic hero, is due to be freed from his bond to the ineffectual pirates when he falls in love with Mabel, one of the many "daughters" of the Major General. Unfortunately, Frederick is also loved by Ruth, an older character role. A band of less than courageous policemen are sent to apprehend the pirates who have captured all of the daughters and plan to do their worst and marry them! All ends happily when it is revealed that the pirates are indeed peers of the realm. "Joyous glee" follows with all characters suitably paired off.
