Thu 23 February 2017, 20:30 – 22:00 GMT
"clever and amusing...a performance of utter physicality and humorous edginess...a cheeky idea developed with considerable skill and engagement into a sensuous elegy to the world of puppetry.." Liam Heylin, The Examiner
‘Now Mr. Punch, I’ve a warrant for your arrest.’
‘Oh hello, Guard. You’ve left your wallet in your vest?’
‘I haven’t left my wallet in my vest, I have a warrant for your arrest!’
‘For my arrest, Guard? And why?’
‘Because I have it on very good authority that you, Mr. Punch, have beaten your wife, and have thrown your baby out of the window!!’
Dominic J Moore presents his one man show, ‘Mr. Punch’, the story of a puppeteer, Jimmy Horgan, and his Punch and Judy show, set in a West Cork town.
ABOUT DOMINIC MOORE:
Dominic began his theatrical career with Meridian, Feedback, Corcadorca and the Granary Theatre in Cork.
