Doubtful. Hapless. Guests. 

February 2020

Doubtful. Hapless. Guests. was a show created with 3rd Year acting students at St Mary's University Drama School.


Inspired by the work of American artist and illustrator Edward Gorey, it was a puppet box set: three short pieces about strange invaders, unlucky children and giant insects. Appallingly funny, humorously disturbing, and occasionally flat out baffling with a variety of approaches to puppetry, this was a provocative, grown-up show with puppets.
