Add stowaways and a rather handsome Chief Steward into the mix and things might get a little... complicated. Choreographer of many films and hit Broadway shows, American Joe Layton's The Grand Tour is a genuinely funny take on the eccentric celebrities that populated England's stages, screens and newspapers in the 1920s, accompanied by unique orchestral renditions of Noël Coward songs.

When the dashing Captain Belaye arrives in town, the female population swoon! Chief amongst them is Poll. Whilst half-heartedly dodging the attentions of Jasper, the Potboy at a local inn, she finds herself leading a band of desperate, love-lorn ladies, all seeking the attentions of the admirable officer, who is unwittingly taking the town by storm. Wrapped up in his own little world, when will the oblivious Captain Belaye notice that half his crew have mysteriously shrunk and don't seem very at home in their beards?
