LIGHTING DESIGN FOR
BI-CURIOUS GEORGE and OTHER SIDEKICKS
NOW18 Festival, The Yard Theatre, London
A collaboration between live artist Lucy Hutson and her dad, Professor "the 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, and most recently playing Curious George the monkey on board a ferry between England and Holland.
They reminisce through rose tinted spectacles and rebond over cute childhood memories. Lucy screams at her dad like a teenager and Addrian behaves like a belligerent wind-up merchant.
Addrian and Lucy play it for laughs with impassioned sincerity in this show, which fuses the styles of the glib entertainer and the earnest artist.
