Synopsis:
Famous puppeteers Judy (Mia Wasikowska) and her husband Punch (Damon Herriman) live in the town of Seaside. A strange place that is located nowhere near any sort of coastline, the town and its inhabitants are in thrall to a frenzy of witch hunts and superstition. But while the townspeople revel in the drama of the various trials and punishments, 'Judy and Punch' provide welcome distraction with their magical puppet show. However, temptation can be found in every dark corner of Seaside, and the charismatic Punch succumbs to the women, the ale and adulation that await him at the local tavern.
Despairing at her husband's weakness, Judy forces the hungover Punch to focus on his responsibilities and leaves him to mind their baby for a morning, the repercussions of which lead to an ill-fated turn of events that Judy must avenge...

Packs a Punch - Judy and Punch review by PD

Spoiler Alert
07/04/2020

This highly original, deliberately disturbing, piece is a tale of domestic-violence revenge with a fairy-tale like quality. The plot's rather basic and the feminist message isn't very subtle, whilst some of the comedic touches are a tad clumsy, but Mirrah Foulkes' script and direction are largely excellent, and there's so many wonderful, ingenious touches that overall it's a highly enjoyable watch (if not for the squeamish or easily offended). The whole cast play their respective parts with great gusto (I suspect they really enjoyed themselves), but Mia Wasikowska is particularly good as Judy, who perfectly combines her vulnerability and inner strength, and Damon Herriman's Punch neatly displays the toxic combination of the demon drink and the need for applause. The design is simply spellbinding, whilst Francois Tetaz's wacky, sinister score which includes pretty much everything from light orchestra to retro prog-rock, is a perfect accompaniment to the incongruous matching of the brutality and absurdity being played out on screen. Terrific stuff.
