Me and My Girl


Me and My Girl by Noel Gay with original book and lyrics by Douglas Furber and L. Arthur Rose. The musical is set in the late 1930s and tells the story of an unapologetically unrefined cockney gentleman named Bill Snibson, who learns that he is the 14th heir to the Earl of Hareford.


Original West End run in 1937 returning briefly in 1952. The musical's book received a revision by Stephen Fry with Mike Ockrent in the 1980s. This revised version of Me and My Girl also included the song "Leaning on a Lamp-post" and opened in the West End in 1985 before transferring to Broadway in 1986.

Performed by the Little Theatre, Donnington from 20th Nov to 22nd Nov 2014.
