The Two Farting Sisters is a funny and entertaining story aimed at kids, but many adults in tonight’s audience were laughing just as much. This kind of show brings out your inner child.
“The tale of a girl whose flatulence causes blossoms to bloom” is beautifully told by the talented Petit Workshop as an inventive and well-crafted puppet show.
The simple set folds out and expands as needed; they use a range of intricate shadow puppets and props, and find many ways to portray farts. There’s also a cat called Phil, who manages to steal the show a few times.
Live music, played by Adam Ogle, provides a soundtrack that blends in perfectly including; guitar, mandolin, keyboard and balloons.
Two Farting Sisters is a great show to see before heading to the Lantern Festival across the road this weekend.
For anyone who likes a magic farts story with a few twists and turns will come out with a big smile on their face.
