"Delightfully silly and thoroughly enjoyable" - The Heckler

Never too late in the season to get a nice review. This just in from The Heckler:

The show put on by The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppets is certainly nothing ground-breaking, nor is it a high tech production, but it is worth the ticket price nonetheless.

While the banter between the two puppets certainly borrows from its forebears like Punch and Judy, it is clever enough and cheeky enough to still seem fresh. The same can be said for the continued misunderstandings on the behalf of one of the puppets – whose side the audience will inevitably take.

The real strength of these puppets though, is when they parody films and television, whilst their constant bickering continues. The attempts to interact with the audience in this live show were weaker and slowed the otherwise chaotic energy of the show, as well as drawing attention to the fact that they are in fact, socks on someone’s hands, rather than characters in their own right. On the whole though, the show is delightfully silly and thoroughly enjoyable – just make sure you leave the kiddies at home and remember not to take anything too seriously.

The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre are at The Garden Of Unearthly Delights, Adelaide every night at 7.45 until March 18th. Tickets here.
