LOVE PANTOS? With original songs & music, comedy routine and your classic/mandatory audience participation, this show is just for you!
HATE THEM? That’s great, because THE FOREIGNERS’ PANTO is not a panto. Alongside the joy and silliness, the play offers sharp insights and questions into Britishness and immigrant experience in this country.
HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE? Wonderful! Because neither does the company. In fact, they can’t even get the dates right..
THE FOREIGNERS’ PANTO is a political musical comedy about a group of immigrants trying to put on their own version of a traditional British pantomime; both a heartwarming madcap comedy-of-errors and a sharp satire on lives of immigrants in the UK – told through their eyes.
