A nasty ogress (really a man in a dress) is the forgotten mother of a charming prince who eventually brings a beautiful virgin to life with a not-so-chaste kiss. The stuff of nightmares? To psychoanalysts, maybe, but in reality, a new version of Sleeping Beauty at London's Young Vic theatre. If you are wondering what has happened to that great seasonal tradition of giving work to fading soap stars and deeply unfunny comedians, fear not. Panto is alive and well. But for those who want a Christmas show with a difference, there's plenty of alternative entertainment on offer.
