Pantoland is in trouble! Mareasa Tay has just become the new Prime Minister and with the help of her mangy mutt Boris she can do whatever she wants. First on her agenda – bring back the old grammars! Mareasa will do whatever she needs to, even if that means killing school children in the woods… Will Panto High School be replaced? Will School Dinners Incorporated be forced to close? Will Mareasa succeed, or will she end up in a huge, big Mareasa Pie?
Performed at the Into The New festival 2017, Babes in the Woods: From Power to Pie is a pantomime written and directed by Kieran McMath, which uses the performative, fantastical world of a pantomime to critique the oh so real pantomime of post Brexit Britain and the uncertainty that this has created for us all.
