About the Show
A new adults-only pantomime about fairytale princes stumbling into the modern world.
In the small kingdom of Slutvia, a 21st birthday ball is taking place. The widowed Queen Gertrude is on the prowl for a husband, and her son Prince Beauty searches for the boy of his dreams. When he stumbles on someone in the palace gardens, they both get more than they bargain for - and wake up in a modern world where the palace has been taken over by the National Trust and the man of your dreams is somewhere on Grindr …
'Sleeping Beauty Takes A Prick!' is a new naughty but feel-good panto from the team behind Above The Stag Theatre’s queer Christmas shows.
“What makes ‘Sleeping Beauty Takes A Prick’ work is that the team have put together a proper pantomime, yes it might be for adults only but just look at David Shield’s impressive set, plus it has all the elements that make panto’s work...Everything that the team have done makes 'Sleeping Beauty Takes a Prick' easily the best adult pantomime in London.”
"Even if it gets a bit baggy in the middle, and maybe the jokes aren’t quite as sharp as previous years, it’s good to see this adult panto back, hitting the sweet spot for those who love the form but have put the days of family-friendly firmly behind them."
