Presents the follies of the irrepressible Cocky and the imperious Sir as they play the comical Game of Life in this timely allegorical satire on the British class system. As they play, demonstrating how the working class can't get ahead because of the rules set and constantly changed by the ruling classes, they encounter a dizzying array of bizarre and colourful characters who lead them to an unexpected conclusion... Songs include A Wonderful Day Like Today, The Joker, Who Can I Turn To?, The Beautiful Land and Feeling Good.
