We went to see the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre last night; it’s an adult comedy using sock puppets to deliver the lines. They gave us their versions of Hamlet, Titus Andronicus, Othello and Romeo and Juliet. The groanworthy gags are studiously silly, and non-stop and the constantly bickering socks digress at any opportunity they are given rather than actually do Shakespeare. There’s some great audience interaction and they also took on the likes of Michael Jackson  . . . which I personally found hilarious . . . and which are probably staples of the act. Too long by twenty minutes I don’t think I would go again: you only have to get the joke once.
