Let’s get the obligatory joke out the way: My husband hates the pantomime. Oh no he doesn’t. Well yes, actually he does. Incredible, isn’t it?!
I don’t know what really gets his goat: I think he is afraid of interaction: The idea that Widow Twanky might end up on his lap. Or that he’ll end up on a winch with Tinkerbell.
So last year, when Principal Girl Productions asked me to write a pantomime script and I said, ‘Whooppeee, you betcha!’ put it this way: he wasn’t thrilled. (Oh no he wasn’t.)
