Iolanthe, a fairy, has married a mortal. Horror! For this crime she was exiled
by the Queen of the Fairies, and has lived at the bottom of a pond for 20
years. Her son Strephon, who is half fairy and half mortal, has grown up as a
shepherd. He wants to marry Phyllis, a Ward in Chancery. She loves him, but
does not know he is half fairy. Of course the Lords of Chancery all love Phyllis and
want to have her for themselves. Does Iolanthe get released from her exile?
Does Strephon tell the truth about his family history? Who gets Phyllis?
