  • Sleeping Beauty – The Panto

We all know that the fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty dates back at least three centuries, but bring up the title to most people and their first thought is… probability theory and epistemology. Right? Arnold Zuboff's "Sleeping Beauty Problem" draws on the "paradox of the absentminded driver," of course, and—what? You really have no idea what I'm talking about? Fine, you Wiki n00bs. It seems that the Hong Kong Players' annual fun-for-the-whole-fam Christmas panto treads pretty closely to the Disney version anyways. But to appease the adults in the room, it adds cross-dressing, heckling, terrible jokes, and of course, an in-depth discussion of how we understand what we define as "knowledge."
