Snow unexpectedly arrived in the Duchy yesterday-
After lunch we went to the theatre. In Edinburgh, tradition ( of late) was one venue did a pantomime and one did a Christmas Show. The Christmas Show was played for wonder, story telling and clever set design whilst the Pantomime was , well a pantomime , as seen these days.
In past years we have seen superb Christmas Shows such as The Snow Queen and The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe. I have gone some years with family, some with school.
The problem lies with expectation, we had gone expecting the Christmas Show. However in the intervening years since we last went the Christmas Show has morphed into a hybrid of the two forms- Panto and Christmas Show. It is neither fish nor fowl.
However it was a splendid day out with daughters and their respective boyfriends. A great way to begin December ❄️❄️❄️❄️
