The last treat of the holidays ... and I was completely enchanted by this afternoon's matinée of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland at the lovely little Polka Theatre which I've never visited before. In fact, I now think grown-up theatres should have a rocking horse, a puppet theatre and a walk-in doll's house for pre-theatre and interval entertainment. I didn't even miss my usual gin and tonic.
Rabbit holes and disappearing Cheshire cats aren't the easiest things to stage - but a very talented cast put on a funny, inventive show that made all of us laugh out loud. And showed that you can keep grown-ups happy without resorting to tacky pantomime innuendo. Highly recommended and on for another couple of weeks.
