MELBOURNE FRINGE HINTS 8: Puppets and Letters

Apparently the cool puppet-based shows just use letters as titles.  And now there are only 24 titles left.

X
Terrible Comfort


Promising zombie pirates, steampunk robots, monsters of the deep and an epic skeleton army sword battle, X is already far more interesting than many Fringe shows. And there are fluffy critters and its about a pirate battling with rum. 

Presented by experimental puppet company Terrible Comfort, the artistic collaboration of MTC playwright Robert Reid and visual artist Sayraphim Lothian, and Barking Spider Theatre X features more SM favourites like Penelope Bartlau and Hayley Butcher, so it's gotta be cool. 

U
Peepshow Inc at Signal


Peepshow Inc have created some of the most gorgeous puppet theatre I've seen. 

U is an opportunity for 13 to 18-year olds to create and work with Peepshow in a series of workshops and interactive performances at the City of Melbourne's Signal space.

Workshop and performance info is here. If you don't book, you'll miss out.
