The Christmas Cuckoo's Cooking

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a good old thigh-slapping panto. Well, it would actually, but you have to go along with these myths. The Drama Group's Panto was cancelled this year, but we went to the other one this afternoon (daytime theatre, how bizarre!).

The show was called The Christmas Cuckoo's Cooking, produced by Torch Theatre from somewhere in Wales. It's been brought to Dubai by Streetwise Fringe, and was staged at the Crowne Plaza Auditorium. Honestly, since our littlun became a biggun, I have not seen so many small kids gathered together in one place and misbehaving enjoying themselves on such a grand scale.

Some of the tiny kids were bawling and wailing during the first half, and there was a fair bit of chatter during the second. But it was a good show, well-acted, original, good set/props and effective moody lighting (well done Billy!).

After the show (6 p.m. already!) we went to wagamamma, a new-ish noodle bar at the Crowne Plaza. Tasteful interior, excellent food and friendly helpful staff. We'll be back.

Hi there. I must say I've been lurking on this site for a while now and I'm enjoying it (the site, not the lurking) immensely. I love to hear about the daily workings of life in the UAE like soccer games (that'd be *ahem* football to you lot) and booze and the like. Kudos!

Duffy, speaking of lurking (are you saying you don't enjoy that then?), I have a friend who does quite a bit of that as part of his job. I might write about it one day.
