Simon Young, as Sarah, the coyly querulous cook with a wonderful line in silly laughs and lopsided walks, is a pantomime dame par excellence. His pairing with Ben Nickless, who as Idle Jack has enough charisma for a whole cast and is half Youngs height, makes for some top-notch comedy. The timing in the water pistol sequence is masterly and when, on the night I saw it, the custard pie routine fell apart, their skillful ad-libbing and hair-breadth retention of control made one of the funniest scenes I have seen in a pantomime for a long time.
