Slapstick and Sausages: The Evolution of British Pantomime

For almost three hundred years, the curious and illogical theatrical form known as Pantomime has entertained British audiences.

Love it or hate it, when Christmas comes around, King Panto still captures the imagination of millions, with adults becoming children again... if only for a few short hours.

Behind the magic of spectacular scenery, glittering, bizarre costumes and fairy tale characters, however, lurks a fascinating and sometimes chilling history.

In this enthralling book, the author traces the evolution of British Pantomime from pre-Christianity to the present century; revealing the origins of several comedic set-pieces and introducing many of the famous (or forgotten) people who shaped its extraordinary development.

Packed with amusing anecdotes and excruciating puns, it will delight readers with a sense of the ridiculous, and make a perfect addition to the libraries of anyone interested in Theatre.
