Theatre favourites Dominic Goodwin, Bromwyn Jennison, Amelia Gillen and James Potter return to The Swallow Theatre with a laugh out loud show celebrating that great British institution: the pantomime.
‘Last Panto in Little Grimley’ centres on a fading amateur dramatic group, The Grimley Players, who, due to dwindling audiences, are forced into staging a risqué pantomime. But a set of calamitous happenings through the rehearsal period make the opening night predictably hilarious.
‘A Pantomime’ is one of a series of stories written by the actor and writer Peter Jones, known for his appearances in many comedy movies of the 60s and 70s as well as TV’s ‘The Rag Trade’ and radio’s ‘Just a Minute’. Jones created J Kingston Platt, a theatre impresario, for BBC Radio 4 in the 1980s. This tall tale was first broadcast in 1985.
With the kind permission of Peter Jones’s family, Dominic Goodwin reads the story with his known sense of comic timing and fun.
