PhotoHunt: Original


Sleeping Beauty

This is the script and poster for a pantomime of Sleeping Beauty which we put on at college many, many years ago. Around 1987 or '88, I would guess.

It was written by Jon, Ian, Phil and me. I think Marcus may have had a hand in it too.

Phil directed it. For a few weeks. Then he went off in a huff about something and it got directed as a joint effort. I think. Or was that Snow White and the Seven Persons of Restricted Growth? It was a very long time ago.

But it was the most original thing I've ever taken part in and we all loved it for a long time afterwards.

Looking back now, reading the script, it's very self-indulgent and parochial!
