Written in Brighton in 1887, Dandy Dick is tells the hilarious story of the Very Reverend Augustin Jedd, a pillar of Victorian respectability, who preaches regularly against the evils of horse racing and gambling. However, a visit from his tearaway sister, Georgiana, leads him to risk all at the races, much against his better judgement. Mayhem ensues, with romantic intrigue, mistaken identity and a runaway horse. A glorious British comedy, Dandy Dick is a rarely seen treasure that so richly deserves to be revived again, for the first time in almost fifteen years.
