Panteau(laimon)

Last night we attended the last performance of the Queen Mary Players' performance of The Three Musketeers, Le Panteau. It was a pantomime, which, does not, as you might think, involve white-faced mutes. I knew nothing about pantomime before the show. I thought it would be a short play for kids. In fact, it was a 3-hour cavalcade of bad puns, cross-dressing, off-color jokes, and French-bashing. In other words, a microcosm of life in England. I now understand the roots of Monty Python.
