Big Telly Theatre Company presents Spike Milligan’s comic masterpiece PUCKOON! - an irreverent and hilarious story which takes the mick, celebrates the absurd, and paints a picture of a simple life that borders on the ridiculous.
Ireland 1922, and the Ulster Boundary Commission has drawn the new border straight through the small town of Puckoon.  With the church separated from its own graveyard and drink now thirty percent cheaper in one corner of the pub, life in the newly divided village will never be the same again.
Puckoon will have you screaming with laughter at its Goonish blend of theatrical anarchy, musical wit, and impossible plot!
Tickets £15 / £13
Ages 12 +
