REVIEWS ARE IN: Pillow Fight

22 January, 2024

The reviews are in for our premiere season of Pillow Fight, a raucous comedy about two siblings locked in a heroic battle to discover who broke Great Grandma’s biscuit barrel

Written by Perth comedy legend Sam Longley (Beanstalk) and directed by Philip Mitchell (The One Who Planted Trees, Blueback), Pillow Fight is the feel-good holiday romp we have all been waiting for. Join the warring siblings, Shane and Nadia, on a jam-packed puppet adventure as they enlist their favourite toys in a hilarious pillow fight for the truth, ultimately learning that though the truth is fragile, the bonds of family are unbreakable.


★★★★★ “From a frolicking jaunt into magical forests to a raucous adventure in outer space and finally a courtroom denouement, the puppets in the show cover a vast terrain and take the viewer on a joyous journey.”



“The puppet design in Pillow Fight was fantastic… There was a knight in shining armour, a witch dressed in a pointed hat and sparkly robes, a spaceman with orange hair, and even a bright red football with a big mouth and goofy eyes. Pillow Fight will delight children and will make adults feel nostalgic about their childhood. “


Stage Whispers

“A hectic 50 minutes that provokes screaming laughter from its young audience, this is a lovely tale of family bonds and some fabulous imagination.”
