Midnight's Pumpkin

Battersea Arts Centre
18 December

The magic is in simple things transformed:
the garden shed press-ganged into a coach,
the bathrobe-bedecked mice prancing ahead.

The story fairly drips with blood
and bawdy pantomime, as roaring stepmother
takes on the household; oh but we adored

the ginger cat scooting on wheels,
and the flying toes and tears as the sisters
fought to fit their feet into that tiny shoe...

Midnight's Pumpkin runs until 13 January 2013 at the BAC
