Behind You!This irreverent, unsettling, outrageous "Christmas show" at New Wimbledon Studio is an alternative to the sparkle and over-effusiveness of panto season for Bah Humbug-types or anyone who enjoys that cynical, bitter-tasting, slightly unpleasant brand of comedy. Behind You! is the antithesis of the good old-fashioned family pantomime; turning the stage back-to-front to reveal what happens when the actors are out of character is like putting a black smudge across the ever-smiling world of showbiz. Spirits among the two-bit cast are low at the requisite tumble-down theatre in a generic seaside town, named Misery-on-Sea for artistic purposes. But a big-shot producer is coming to see the show, which sends the backstage antics into near-hysteria. This is a raucous, roughly funny riot of a show, polluting Christmas from the inside, but with a bittersweet storyline that still has a tug at the heartstrings. Unsurprisingly, it's not suitable for children!

About New Wimbledon Theatre

New Wimbledon Theatre opened in 1910 and is housed in a beautiful Grade II listed building. Its opening production was the pantomime 'Jack and Jill' and The Times gave it a glowing review - "For beauty and size Wimbledon Theatre would not disgrace Shaftesbury Avenue".
