Alternative performances

This is cardboard stuck to a stick at its best! Cutting comedy from Britain's leading satirical shadow-puppet duo. In a mere 60 minutes hundreds of puppets are animated at break-neck speed to provide up-to-the-minute commentary on everything from global finance to polar bears. As discarded politicians fly by your ears, delight in the shadowy characters who speak, beatbox and pole dance for your entertainment. This is South Park meets Newsnight with a whole load of cardboard. ***** 'Scathingly funny' (Sunday Times). ***** 'Seriously funny' (EdinburghGuide.com). ***** 'Relentlessly witty' (TVBomb.co.uk).
