Part of Emergency Festival
Written and performed by Jonny Fluffypunk
Supported by Strike A Light and Arts Council England
In partnership with the Department of English at University of Southampton, ArtfulScribe and MAST Mayflower Studios present: Jonny Fluffypunk’s End of the Pier Show as part of ArtfulScribe’s Spoken Word Weekender.
At the end of a soon-to-be-closed-down pier in a forgotten seaside town, Pierre the pier handyman spends the last weeks as he always does: catching fish for his old bedridden mother and making strange and wonderful things from the rubbish he finds on the beach.
Then who should wash into his life but a homeless mermaid with a spiky attitude and a story to tell! And things aren’t going to be the same again… Can kindness lead to great things? Can a bit less litter make a difference? Can the world’s first human/mermaid rock ‘n’ roll band make big waves?
Renowned stand-up poet and lo-fi theatre maker Jonny Fluffypunk presents a brand spanking new little show for families, with poetry, puppetry, story, song and a healthy dose of ramshackle anarchy.
"Acute social observation, intricate humour, surreal fantasy, sharp irony and wit… and England’s most pretentious moustache."
“Evocative, nostalgic, moving and funny. Jonny has triumphed where swathes before him have failed”
“This man truly relishes language. Go see him.”
Tony Allen (‘the godfather of alternative comedy’)
“Sublime… Well-crafted, tender and life-affirming. Highly recommended”
