(A Postmodern Pantomime)

by Luke R. Francis

directed by Will Mytum

Bill and Toni have just met and fallen head-over-heels for each other. Problem is, they’ve met on stage, and Bill’s been plucked from the audience to play Hansel … with Toni playing her sister Gretel. This is the least of enigmatic director Mal Sixsmith’s troubles, as Simon the Dame demands his role be expanded beyond its paltry fourteen pages.

Featuring musical numbers from Cardi B to Kate Bush, Hansel And Gretel? asks the important questions: what is postmodernism? What is pantomime? Is this really a kid’s show, or just a load of pretentious twaddle?

Honestly? Probably, yes. But there is a rapping dragon, so it’s worth coming just for that.

Age recommendation: 8+

Duration: 1 hour

  • Theatre

There are almost no other Christmas shows in Brighton this year! This is a panto that's silly for the kids and different enough from the usual formula to keep adults and older kids entertained.
