Choosing my top five favourites from amongst the pantomimes I had the great pleasure and privilege of watching has been really easy! Here they are…. oh yes, they are…. (I need to stop that).
In my humble opinion, the ultimate specialist in farce is Alan Ayckbourn and nowhere is my point more finely demonstrated than in How The Other Half Loves. A classic, fast-paced, quick-humour-packed bundle of confusion and chaos which it could be so easy to lose the thread of if it’s not directed and performed on point.
