With absurd humour, endearing characters and charming puppetry, Clunk is a refreshing new comedy which follows the daily drudgery of three cohabiting young adults who are struggling to engage with a world that baffles them.
Following a premiere in June last year, the show has been further developed by The Suitcase Ensemble with additional visual and puppet direction from Liz Walker of the world renowned surreal puppet company Faulty Optic.
The production has been made possible by support from Arts Council England, Unity Theatre and from Liverpool-based creation centre Hope Street, who have nurtured The Suitcase Ensemble from its inception.
Peter Ward, director of Hope Street, said: “The Suitcase Ensemble is a group of enthusiastic, creative and dedicated artists who create exciting and imaginative theatre. I was impressed by their scratch version of Clunk and inspired by the style of the theatre they had developed; quite bizarre and totally different to anything being produced in the Merseyside region.”
Following tour stops at Liverpool and Bury, Clunk ends its tour at The Lowry in Salford Quays on 22 April.
