Matlock Storytelling Cafe Present “Oh No It Isn’t!”
The True Tales behind our favourite Pantomimes
From out of the East Anglian woods two young children emerge, green-skinned, babbling a strange language. In Gloucestershire, a poverty-stricken boy heads to London with dreams of making his fortune, whilst out on the dust filled plains of New Mexico, a poor Turkey girl disobeys her instruction to be back from the ball before midnight, with disastrous consequences! If you think Magic goldfish, deals with the Devil or dreams of finding a fortune are the stuff of fantasy, then you'd be wrong. “Oh No It Isn’t!” reveals the origins of some of the nation’s favourite pantomimes, and even a Christmas carol or two! So prepare to slap your thighs, boo and hiss, ready to hear some crackers of a story.
