Beatrice And Eugenie Ugly Sisters
January 3, 2012 by staff
Theatre-goers complained it was a “cheap joke” to call the sisters after the Duke of York’s two daughters. Producers defended their decision, pointing out that the sisters were not referred to as “ugly” in the panto.
The Marlowe Theatre website, however, clearly calls the pair the ‘ugly sisters’ on its website, with a photo of actors Ian Smith and Michael J Batchelor dressed up as the pair.
During the panto, which runs until the end of the month, the pair are seen in “hideous costumes including fake tiger skin, red leather and wigs.
One critic, Bob Britnell, a senior planning officer for Canterbury City Council, said the two daughters of Sarah, Duchess of York should “not be mocked”.
