Have your say

Puppet shows weren’t supposed to be like this. Cute cats and dogs perform, aided by their puppeteering masters, but something is wrong with their narrator.

Star rating: **

Venue: Spotlites (Venue 278)

On her god-like voiceover instruction they engage in violence and sex, and a hooded demon bursts on to the stage and drags one of them off to hell. It’s a patchy show, not quite in command of what it wants to say, but the performances are enthusiastic and the shock humour effective.

Until 20 August. Today 7:40pm.
