New comedy / crime / drama Judy & Punch is the latest from Mia Wasikowska, Damon Herriman and Benedict Hardie.
Written / directed by Mirrah Foulkes and set in a town called Seaside, puppeteers Judy and Punch are trying to resurrect their marionette show. The show is a hit due to Judy’s superior puppeteering, but Punch’s driving ambition and love of whisky lead to an inevitable tragedy that Judy must avenge…
A long time ago, I vaguely recall hearing more than once that the story behind Punch and Judy, the famous traditional 16th century puppet show, featuring Mr. Punch and his wife Judy is actually darker than people realise. I guess it’s time to find out precisely why.
I’m looking forward to the humour among the darkness and of course, Judy’s sweet, sweet vengeance.
Eddie Baroo, Tom Budge, Virginia Gay, Amy Christian, Kiruna Stamell, Don Bridges, Michael M. Foster and Daisy Axon also star.
Judy & Punch Release Dates: November 15th, 2019 (UK)
