Reviews

'An ingenious mix of the farcical and the macabre.' Financial Times

'The script is funny and swift... the visual jokes are a joy.' The Arts Desk

★★★★ 'A dark, obscure, exquisite reimagining of Punch's tale... an amazing ride filled with ideas about creativity, decline and above all death.' The Times

'A deliciously dark tribute to our oldest theatrical icon.' The Stage

'A gleefully nasty piece of work... an atmospheric and very funny homage to the Punch and Judy puppet show. Cleverly staged and beautifully performed.' The Observer

★★★★ 'As you would expect from Crouch, one of theatre's great designers, The Devil and Mister Punch is a visual delight. It's chock-full of visual puns and jokes as well as mishearing and double-entendres.' The Guardian

★★★★ 'The Devil and Mister Punch is rude, raucous and irreverent, but also full of wistfulness for the vaudeville era. It is visually stunning, blackly coming and gently sad.' Time Out
