A Hilarious Adults-Only Puppet Show Is Coming To Stockport Plaza

By Laura O'Neill

Sooty fans, look away now.

Australia’s greatest theatrical export, Puppetry Of The P, will celebrate its 20th Anniversary with a hilarious Greatest Bits Tour, which will see the two stars head to Manchester to shape a host of tricks with their bits.

 On May 4, the duo will bring a collection of all of their ‘greatest bits’ to Stockport Plaza for a show producers say will have audiences ‘rolling in the aisles in uncontrollable fits of laughter’. Come and see the Eiffel Tower, the Lochness Monster, the Pelican and of course, the iconic Hamburger, alongside a host of new ‘installations.’

And for those wondering how a show featuring men manipulating their dangly bits could go on to conquer the world, creator Simon Morley will start the show with a series of ‘Cocktales’ which will tell the puppet show’s ‘gobsmackingly good’ origin story.


Come celebrate the absurd, and laugh like no ones watching. Tickets are available from Fever and are priced at £21. Click here to get yours.

Note: This is a non-sexual show but does contain entirely visible bodies.
