Seen downstairs at the Royal Court in what seemed like the pantomime-like run up to Christmas Day.

I don't think I've ever seen anything quite so frivolous at the Royal Court but it really worked with the season's sentiment and as I had something of a theatre novice with me, I was able to relax and let all the silliness wash over me. The dialogue was ping-ponging backwards and forwards like a treat and the performances were enviably joyous.
