Bickering snails, neurotic snakes, opera singing mice and a cranky man out to capture a bird: welcome to a swamp like no other! 

Using jaw dropping shadow puppets made from household objects and bits of rubbish, acclaimed Bunk Puppets puppeteer Jeff Achtem creates a wildly imaginative gurgling adventure about life in a swamp.

This award-winning favourite of family audiences and critics has toured the world and comes to QPAC this June, with an out of this world 3D shadow puppet finale that will leave you spellbound.

★★★★★ “Awesome!” The Adelaide Advertiser
“Genuinely quite extraordinary... delightfully clever.” The Guardian
“One of the most spellbinding moments of puppet theatre I have ever encountered.” The Stage (UK)
“A rollicking, rapturously imaginative puppetry tour-de-force. Creator and actor Jeff Achtem brings a menagerie of creatures to life with the deft flick of a thumb or poke of a toe, and the audience is treated to a fascinating behind-the-scenes vantage point as we watch the creator, his colourful creatures, and the mesmerizing shadow puppet art they create… A must-see for children and adults alike.” theatreguidelondon.co.uk
