Growing up as children of a celebrity ventriloquist, family problems regularly become front page fodder. Especially when your parent is a national joke.

Burned by the glare of the spotlight, Teddy is a recluse, his only companion the dummy on his arm. But when his sister Dolly has a meltdown live on children’s television, the family home receives a couple of new house guests. One of them wooden.

Throwing tantrums as well as voices, the whole family take to the stage. But which dummy is in control? From Peter Dunne, writer of This Year’s GirlEerieInhabitance and BROADENING, comes a dark-hearted comedy about guilt, trauma and ventriloquism sure to set tongues wagging.

Contains adult themes.
Developed at FRINGE LAB with the support of Dublin Fringe Festival.


‘Unnerving, disturbing, thought-provoking; this is new writing at its best.’
