Synopsis

This ageless puppet play is brought to life—but fire-works! Punch and Judy, pining behind the tiny stage of their "closed" puppet theatre, are suddenly made aware of a live audience out front by their winsome little dog, Toby. They cannot resist the call to perform. Bursting from behind the puppet stage, they expand into live actors. Merry as a cricket, Punch goes his joyful way through all the familiar plot routines, singing, high-stepping, slap-sticking at all the forces that would mold him into society's form, cheerfully determined to be his own man, to be free—and come out the winner. Might makes right, you see. But they are old puppets. In the end, they return to the puppet stage, singing "There'll always be a Punch and Judy," fading into their puppet selves behind the tiny faded curtain.
