Sold separately, Punch and Judy is a show in itself!

The Complete Punch & Judy Play
"Punch" is based on dialogue between Punch himself and the various characters. It is absolutely flexible, and can be made to suit your own taste, working area and time. It can be as traditional or as up to date as you wish.
Illustrated details are given for making:
- Punch and Judy figures
- A portable Punch frame
- The Proscenium on which the play takes place
- The stage properties
- The Punch "whistle" (as it is called in America) or "swazzle" (British).
Further illustrated details show you how to work or manipulate the figures. A section on Novelty Scenes gives you many more ideas. Also included—a short history of Punch and Judy.
Funny, comedy lines, insults, braggadocio, fights! Wonderful chases! Exciting action! Punch, the "bad guy" seems to win every time! But in the end he gets his just reward. It's the wildest, most dynamic show one man can present. There is no entertainment, for its size, that is as fun and excitement packed as "Punch."
