"A complete delight" - ★★★★ Venue

Brand new review for the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre's show in Bath on Saturday. "A complete delight" - ★★★★ Venue 4 Stars? That'll do nicely.

COMEDY The Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre, now something of a comedy institution, has lost none of its zest. If you haven’t seen it, it does pretty much what it says on the tin. Devised by local boy Kev F Sutherland, it actually does feature a puppet theatre in which two puppets, actually socks, argue with each other in high-pitched Scottish accents. That’s right. The fun comes with the sheer speed and energy of the performance in which the hosiery-related pair shout insults at each other, play ridiculous songs, attempt costume drama, comment on the lyrics of Michael Jackson, make fun of the audience and the sound technician, perpetrate appalling puns, and generally cause mayhem at the rate of about a gag a second. A complete delight. (John Christopher Wood)

★★★★ (4 STARS)
