The tiger who came to tea

With the nieces visiting, we all went out to the theatre to watch The tiger who came to tea, the charming socialist parable of a hard-working couple and their one permitted daughter, who have all of their resources consumed by the large striped feline of capitalism.

Sadly, it turned out we were watching the acceptable, non-Chinese version, although the long-awaited emergence of the tiger onto stage proved too much for one or two of the audience.

"T-tiger! I-it's a tiger!" gibbered one terrified child as he was carried by his father towards the exit.

Uncharitable though it was to laugh at this unfortunate, we laughed all the same.
