Jack and the Beanstalk (Adult)

By Demetria Paxton

A saucy spin on a pantomime classic. This one’s just for grown-ups!

Stella Virgin and her son, Jack, are a happy family until the harsh taxations of the evil Baron Hardon force them further and further into poverty. Distraught, and having recently gotten eyes for the Baron’s daughter, Jack is forced to sell his beloved horse, Horse.

Can the Head Good Fairy and her band of Good Fairies help guide Jack through the ensuing chaos? Will the Virgins ever find their fortune? Will the Baron’s daughter, Jill, ever find true love? And will those pesky villagers ever stop accusing Jack of doing more than riding that horse of his?

Add in a giant with a gun and a whole load of fun, and you’ve got yourself a rip-roaring night out!
