About This Show

This live-action adaptation of the western world’s most enduring popular entertainment follows the beloved and irascible domestic abuser Punch on a hilarious and kill-crazed day of adventure. All your favorite characters are sure to put in appearances: Judy, Pretty Polly, Scaramouch, Jim Crow, Toby the Dog, Jack Ketch, Hector the Horse … even Old Nick himself, the Devil and Prince of Lies, will wind up on the receiving end of Punch’s tomfoolery.

Drawing on performance traditions as richly varied as Commedia dell’Arte, the Roman gladiatorial games, the English mystery plays, Kenpo Karate, Le Theatre du Grand-Guignol, Dorian Mime and Hollywood action-splatter cinema, The School of Night is proud to present a blast of theatrical bombast crafted to batter and berate its viewers into giddy, satisfied submission.

Mr. Punch will tickle your ribs as he bludgeons, stabs, slashes, burns, shoots and inappropriately gropes his way straight into your heart.

Not recommended for kids.
