Oi Frog and Friends! review – a wild time for fans of rhyme
Lyric theatre, LondonJumpy new student Frog overcomes his starting-school nerves in this exuberant musical adaptation of Kes Gray and Jim Field’s picture books Cats sit on mats, mules sit on stools and pumas sit on satsumas. So how about duck-billed platypuses? You’ll know the answer if you’ve raced through the sequels to Kes Gray and Jim Field’s giddy picture book Oi Frog! – which seems to be just about everyone at the Lyric theatre for this boisterous musical adaptation, where the characters and rhymes from the popular series are shaken up and scattered across an original new tale. Like pop stars holding the mic out to their fans, this gang of actors can count on kids to finish every line. “What about sofas?” they ask. “Gophers!” bellows six-year-old Hilda into my ear.Hilda loves the Oi series: at bedtime, one book always leads to another, albeit with diminishing returns. There’s barely a plot between the stories, so neither of us can imagine how they’ll inspire an hour-long show. The setting in Emma Earle’s production – co-written with Zoe Squire, Luke Bateman and Richy Hughes – is Sittingbottom school for animals, inspired by a blackboard scene in Oi Frog! where cranky Cat teaches rhymes that tell creatures where to sit. Preschoolers and reception pupils will respond to a plot that touches on overcoming nerves, making friends and braving school dinners, before growing increasingly zany. Continue reading...

Christmas puddings: Rachel Roddy’s recipe for chocolate, chestnut and prune cake
Try this luxuriantly rich alternative to Christmas pud, heavy with buttery nuts, prunes and dark chocolateTamal Ray’s alternative Christmas pud recipePlums are all very well, but ageing suits them. Their youthful bounce, wrinkled into tricky sweetness with spicy undercurrents: prunes are my favourite aunt of Christmas food, eaten from a fancy tin, soaked, stuffed or made into this cake – which came about by mistake. The recipe I intended to follow does not include butter, but habit got the better of me and, before I knew it, 250g of the stuff was melting into a dark pool with the chocolate.It was an excellent mistake, turning a good cake into an exuberantly good one: dense, rich and thick – especially if you leave it until the next day, when it cuts into an almost fudge-like, velvet slice. Eat with a glass of port and a favourite aunt. Continue reading...
