Iolanthe, a fairy, has been banished from her girlfriends because she married a mortal. The Fairy Queen is persuaded to pardon Iolanthe and so the fairies learn of her son Strephon,who tells his newfound aunts of his sorry situation. Strephon, a bartender at the Arcadia club fancies the apron off of waitress Phyllis - but then again who doesn't!?
