Oedipuss In Boots

Event Date: 
19/12/2013 - 9:00pm to 21/12/2013 - 10:30pm
Venue: 
The Bike Shed Theatre

Fed up with the usual sickly-sweet family-friendly festive fare? Oedipuss In Boots is “a fantastically ridiculous, twisted alternative to your traditional Christmas pantomime” (★★★★ The Public Reviews).

After a sold-out run at Bristol’s Wardrobe Theatre in 2012 and a turn at Shambala Festival, Oedipuss In Boots and its all-male cast return with this new mother loving puntomime full of dark, twisted, adult humour, outrageous costumes, hilarious characters and far too much anthropomorphism for its own good. Featuring original music from Kid Carpet.

Given that his father is the writer, producer and director of the show you might say it was inevitable that Will would get a starring role, but there's no denying Will's pedigree, and he had to prove himself before getting the part.

Writing in the Express & Echo, reviewer Anita Merritt said of Will’s performance: “He dazzled during his dance scenes and looks destined...

Actor Daniel Page is loving being on stage at Exeter Corn Exchange and being hissed, booed and generally hated this Christmas, which isn’t the usual thing that professional actors hope for but in this case it’s perfectly normal as he plays Abanazer, the scheming and plotting baddie in Aladdin which runs from 15th December to 6th January.

Daniel has been all over the country as an actor and performer, but his first pantomime took place right here in Exeter. He says:

“I have only done one other professional panto before and that was last Christmas playing Friar Tuck in Robin...
