Dick Whittington – A New Dick in Town

by Jon Bradfield & Martin Hooper
with songs by Jon Bradfield

3 December 2020 – 28 February 2021

You’re never more than six feet from a rat. They don’t do distancing….

After years of acclaimed smashes, Above The Stag’s pantomime team is back with a fabulous and filthy retelling of the great London legend.

This Dick might not be straight, but he’s got a good head on him. Like many a gay lad he comes to town in search of men and money, but finds himself in mortal combat with devilish mayoral candidate Queen Rat.

With distanced seating, reimagined pantomime traditions and a cornucopia of dick jokes, this rude, riotous and romantic adventure promises a much-needed winter treat.
