Economics in Pantomime
Following what has now become something of a department custom the Lower Sixth Economists took to writing Economic pantomimes in the last week of term.
Following what has now become something of a department custom the Lower Sixth Economists took to writing Economic pantomimes in the last week of term. Some took the more traditional examples such as Hansel and Gretel, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Jack and the Bean Stalk whilst others looked at relating their Economic understanding to Star Wars!
Written and performed by Conrad Parks, Charlotte Blythe, Lewys Marshall and Dora Sun, perhaps the most creative of all pantomimes was the Tale of Snow White and Brexit. Characters such as Nigella Farage who represented the Evil Stepmother and Terry May who saves the day as Prince Charming play out the story. The Seven Dwarfs took on the roles of the UK voters as we saw Sleepy who was too tired to get up and vote and didn’t really care anyway, Dopey who didn’t understand what the EU was, Sneezy who wanted to make the most of the promised payments to the NHS and Grumpy who just wanted to pay less taxes and to stop immigration, all work together to look at the costs and benefits of the UK leaving Brexit known as the poison apple.
