Review: Gothic Punch and Judy

A more aptly named show I don’t think exists, for this is indeed an old style Punch and Judy show, perhaps the finest of this sort of puppetry I have ever seen.

This wicked delight of a show had me gasping, cheering and laughing as the willful Punch proceeded to bash his way through any number of innocents and villains.

The comedic timing was perfect, and the characterisations hilarious.

This brief and brilliant show, is my pick of the festival so far.

Recommended for all adults. A kids version is played during the day called Sea-Side Punch and Judy.

Show watched, 3rd March 2010.

Playing at the Garden as a part of the Adelaide Fringe.
