Shadow puppets in space! Two brothers embark on an epic quest to find a new home planet.

This is the tale of Sam and Junior. Two brothers, who must flee their barren planet, and embark on an epic quest across the galaxy. Using the contents of your cleaning cupboard, Bunk Puppets’ Hamish Fletcher conjures up astonishing lo-fi theatrical wizardry using only old boxes, bubble wrap, drinking straws, tennis balls, ping pong bats and old toys. It’s a crazy shadow puppet universe, all made up from bits of rubbish.

Award-winning Bunk Puppets, creators of Swamp Juice and Sticks Stones Broken Bones is back on tour in Australia, with a new, delicious DIY theatre event.

Forget what you think you know about shadow puppets, buckle-in and tear open your imagination for an epic journey with two brothers as they battle the bad guys, and find strength in each other at warp speed.

“Bunk Puppets brand of shadow puppetry and storytelling is wonderfully impressive, insanely inventive, madly loveable, and has the power to transform an audience of mostly adults into maniacally giggling children.” Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
