LETTER: Alice in Nelsonland not family-friendly

From reader Jim Sanford

We are writing to say we are very disappointed with the recent production of Alice in Nelsonland at the Capitol Theatre. It will be the last pantomime we attend and may be the last “family” production we attend at the Capitol Theatre. Instead of the family friendly celebration we were looking forward to we witnessed a production that included themes of drugs (weed) and sexual innuendo that were a shock to us. These are sensitive themes we would prefer to introduce to our children in our own time in our own way and we were not expecting to find them in a family friendly event. In addition the play contained no reference to this joyous season.
