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. “
“A hectic 50 minutes that provokes screaming laughter from its young audience, this is a lovely tale of family bonds and some fabulous imagination.”
Tickets for Pillow Fight are available here.
The season runs until January 26 at the Ellie Eaton Theatre, Gate 1 at Claremont Showground. Pillow Fight is a story for all ages, but perfect for ages 5+. The 50-minute shows are scheduled daily at 10am and 1pm including the Australia Day public holiday.
