The Theatre Royal Stratford East panto has proved a bit hit-and-miss in recent years, but it’s always worth checking out thanks to an interesting rotating array of writers paired with the inimitable original songs from Robert Hyman, who provides consistently interesting new tunes where most pantos favour glorified cover versions. This year’s is written by Anna Jordan, who made a splash with her award-winning debut play ‘Yen’ and has then largely gone on to write for TV – notably ‘Killing Eve’ and ‘Succession’. Denzel Westley-Sanderson directs a TBA cast.
