It’s back by popular demand! Big Telly’s smash hit stage production of Spike Milligan’s ‘Puckoon’ will be at the Waterside Theatre this Thursday as part of its all-Ireland tour prior to making its West End debut!

Big Telly is Northern Ireland’s longest established theatre company and has worked closely with Spike’s own Spike Milligan Productions to create and present this uniquely goonish theatrical event which combines comedy anarchy and original music and song. The show’s sell-out 2009 tour had audiences all across Ireland screaming with laughter at its Goonish blend of theatrical anarchy, musical wit, and impossible plot. Ireland 1922, and the Ulster Boundary Commission has drawn the new border straight through the small town of Puckoon. With the church separated from its own graveyard and drink now thirty percent cheaper in one corner of the pub, life in the newly divided village will never be the same again. Based on Spike Milligan’s book, this comic masterpiece is an irreverent and hilarious story which celebrates the absurd, and paints a picture of a simple life that borders on the ridiculous.

‘Puckoon’ will be at The Waterside Theatre this Thursday, February 24.

Tickets £12. Concessions: £10. Telephone the Box Office for tickets on: 71. 314000 or book online at: www.watersidetheatre.com
