The play is a comedy set in a small Italian mountain village of San Crispino, where the young priest, Father Silvestro, receives a very unusual telephone call which causes chaos in the village, amongst the inhabitants - Clementina, who is madly in love with the priest, her father, the miserly mayor, Toto, the village simpleton and Consolation, a lady of somewhat doubtful virtue, who arrives there on a dowry fund-raising trip.
These unusual ingredients result in a musical show of refreshing and different entertainment.
Beyond the Rainbow is an Italian musical comedy which was adapted from the English novel "After Me The Deluge", by David Forrest. The show was first produced in Rome in 1974, where it ran for 3½ years. The London production opened at the Adelphi Theatre
