The RVT’s adult panto bounces back from the brink with this Sleeping Beauty spoof
It’s been a rocky old year for the RVT – at one point it looked like it might be shutting its storied doors for good thanks to ‘the obvious’ – but it ends 2020 stronger than many by mounting its annual adult panto. ‘Pricked’ is a spin on the tale of Sleeping Beauty, and follows the adventures of a sex-crazed princess, an over-privileged prince, and a raven with identity issues, plus insecure villainess Maleffluent. Grant Cartwright, Robert McNeilly, Faye Reeves, Fia Hamilton-Houston and Charlie Wood star in Tim McArthur’s production, which is written by Tim Benzie and Paul Joseph, with musical direction by Aaron Clingham.
