A collaboration between live artist Lucy Hutson and her Dad, Professor Amazing Addrian, Punch and Judy man extraordinaire.
Throughout her childhood Lucy worked with her father. as a bottler (money collector) for Punch and Judy in the park, performing magic tricks in his shows, ducking and diving, busking balloon animals and most recently played Curious George, the monkey, on board a ferry between England and Holland.
They have reminisced through rose-tinted spectacles and re-bonded over cute childhood memories. Lucy has screamed at her dad like a teenager, as Addrian is uncompromisingly reasonable / a belligerent wind up merchant. Addrian has found solace in a cup of tea as Lucy bullies him / is forced to put her foot down.
This show is a fusion of styles the glib entertainer and the earnest artist. Addrian and Lucy play it for laughs with impassioned sincerity.
The only questions are, where do these two artists go from here? What new avenues can they explore together when they cannot even agree on the publicity blurb? And can this show survive the appearance of Mr. Punch?
