PUNCH AND JUDY


A hard-hitting tale of hard hitting. Contains sausages, nasty violence, mockery, a bloody lot of swearing, monosodium glutamate, iconoclastic innuendo, adult concepts, blunt instruments and very little scenery.

"...decidedly absurdist—jaunty, rambustious, and scathingly funny. It employs the perverse logic which propelled Thomas Middleton's It's a Mad World My Masters in 1604 and suffused Barry Keefe's refashioned version three-and-a-half centuries later. This is the surreal logical of the Goons and the Pythons, fused with the refactory attitudes of The Young Ones.... Gauntlett's sense of the language is sublime and pulsing with flavour."
—Doug Anderson, The Sydney Morning Herald
